    It's great how the bathhouse has joined in on the island arts scene with pop art. If you love an onsen, do add it on your list of things to do. Besides, a relax late afternoon is required after a day ...  more »

    Serving only those who went to the bath space. And was also felt in the normal bathhouse scent. It is a strange space, such as hot water is transparent, the art was drawn to the bottom of the bathtub, soaking. I'm so hot outside, toward the clerk mother and served promptly and Kazarian in men and women, to meet Shane. It is okay, wait in.. I and was called out. Never clean place, but up heart in the form of customer service. Set 1000 yen by a too high, but I heart towel bath logo and vinyl backing, Cambria is set, so the will be celebrating!

    The place is within walking distance of the Ferry Pier. We didn't pay to go inside, but took a few snaps outside, which was very colourful & decorated.  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.
