Naoshima, Naoshima-cho

4.0
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. A visit to Naoshima represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Naoshima-cho trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • I'm not in the art season, but it's a good time to avoid crowds and take pictures of every scene in the art season, you can slowly appreciate the beautiful Se view, you can wanton leisurely sea Island wind, you can walk in the silent Straight island, the streets and alleys, you can sit on the shore feel the face of the Se inside the Sea Wind, These are the fun of the art season!
