  • In the first place, it does have gone in depth explanation because of the smaller scale, but the seolgyedona can see the blue print. Quite a few people. The space is small. Mostly I is the content, but the light inside the building-centric Oshima's Church or whatever other buildings also. Tadao Ando's buildings will be impressive if you know a little more.

  • This museum, by Ando himself, combines old and new: the traditional shape of the house has a concrete core. Inside there are many sketches of the architect and few models. Small but amazing. Entrance 510¥
  • Nice place to visit, small collection, so only come if you're really into ando's work, or else you might be dissapointed
  • Honestly very little to see even in Japanese. Even for 500 yen it seemed a bit of a rip off. Only go if you're really into architecture.
  • If you realy enjoy architecture design you should go
  • Good for Ando's fans and architects. Ando Museum seems to be a small collection of Ando's essence. The only problem is that we are not allowed to take photo inside.

Where to stay in Naoshima-cho

Book ahead if you opt to stay in Naoshima-cho, especially during weekends and holidays, as the island has become an increasingly popular beach getaway. A wide variety of accommodations lie scattered across the island, but remember that many of the lodgings don't have English-speaking staff, so you'll need to make reservations in Japanese. Budget and mid-range options abound, including ryokans, hostels, dormitories, and beachside lodges, while an extravagant designer hotel-museum often books up months in advance.
