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.
