Naoshima, Naoshima-cho

(4/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Take a boat from Uno (Honshu) or Takamatsu (Shikoku) to explore Naoshima, a small island known for its modern art museums and natural sights. Rent a bike upon arrival to travel around the island in style, taking in its charmingly selective and thoroughly modern cultural sites, and tranquil sandy beaches. The contrast between the thrilling modernity of the island's cultural highlights and its laid-back, rustic atmosphere makes for an unusual but pleasant mix. Don't rush the experience, and take the time to explore the island's charms, both futuristic and traditional.
