Art House Project, Naoshima-cho

4.1
#3 of 96 in Sightseeing in Kagawa Prefecture
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
Art House Project allows Japanese and foreign artists and architects to turn abandoned buildings into large-scale art installations that help visitors discover the everyday life of a small fishing village. Scattered around the neighborhood, the houses are almost impossible to find without a map, some help from locals, and interaction with other travelers, which makes the whole experience seem like a treasure hunt. Do not miss a replica of the Statue of Liberty and the glass staircase at the Go'o Shrine.

  • Beginning in 1998 the idea was that artists take empty residential houses and turn them into works of art. There are seven sites dotted around the village and they're all interesting in their own way....  more »
  • Great pieces in an architecturally purposed build location to ensure best space, light, environment, outdoors views wrap up the Art House experience.  more »
  • Each one a gem - to be enjoyed in small bites in the small town setting - very relaxing. You get tickets for all and then stamped at each place when you enter.  more »

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.
