  • I feel so close several times, but in recent years the number of tourists not odd, in the shop of the island's people tired are coming out like. To Naoshima island a few years ago, I really relaxed and had 楽shimerete art. It is popular with out too much trouble too. However, the beauty of the Seto Inland Sea from the island is really nice

  • Take the ferry (from ¥ 990) from the port of Takamatsu, 50 minutes there is the island of the world. Polka-dot pattern in making clean in the ferry, ferries and cute space comfortable and then have room like there several quickly and while arrived on the island of art in 50 minutes. And time goes slowly in the bath house and chichu art museum works of art... see a lot in one day at 回remasenn. Wholesale crab Palace-Pudong areas, village areas, divided and the Museum area. Day I went there, such as bicycles, motor cycle, moped rental shop when you get off the ferry at the sold out at all. So, on this day, cheap bus (¥ 100), I was surprised! And I wander on foot. It is also good to go have lunch dining was quite useful, but feeling. In go go photo nice spot spread so this was taking 300 pictures on the day. But I was most anxious I ♡ bath water says it is. So we couldn't go in the interest of time I want to go! 1 seven-eleven. It is useful because the port was a lot sells souvenirs. Fewer toilets of the harbour. As far as Kusama Yayoi color and says if the polka dot patterns galore ♡ island because it was still under construction objects in non-art festival, so there it is. For fun is a lot of things I want to write more, but after you try it (^ ^ ♪

  • A bit of an adventure to get there but well worth it if you appreciate art. Once you arrive you can take either the passenger boat or ferry. They use the same ticket but the ferry is far more frequent...  more »
