  • It is a Museum of contemporary art building, but during the space of one rock is a theme or gazing at the Zen Garden, long poles or towers high above. I am in Naoshima so pretty!

  • In many respects a museum of architecture and not art. Breathtaking design complimented by cutting edge art. You wont be sorry you visited 
  • Apparently. Lee Ufan is a very famous artist, that I had never heard of. The grounds and museum are devoted entirely to his work, but there is very little actually on display. I was reminded of the qu...  more »
  • Best Ando i've visited
  • A small but well curated collection of Ufan's work, and while a bit hit and miss, the hits such as Shadow of Stone 2010 and Point Line Plane 2010 (the latter can be seen without entering the museum) make a visit worthwhile. However some items such as Dialogue 2010 and Dialogue 2013 are good demonstrations that putting crap in an 'arty' setting doesn't make it any less crap. The building is also a lovely piece of architecture and a more understated work than the Chi Chu museum down the road, also by the same architect.
  • another great ando building. ufan's art didn't do it for me though.
  • Classic Japanese modern architecture - worth a visit. You can easily walk here from Benesse House - no need to wait for the shuttle bus.
  • The Lee Ufan collection here on Naoshima is world class and certainly worth inclusion in a tour of the islands full collection of works. Budget an hour to walk through the space in between Benesse House and Chichu visits; the free shuttle will stop at all three. True, there are only a few works, but each is a masterpiece and a disciplined mind will appreciate the chance to view them in a space specifically designed for their exhibition. Fewer visitors mean a more tranquil opportunity to absorb this Japanese master's art of encounter in conversation with the larger body of meditative Japanese art.
