  • In addition to the famous Museum of the Rich Islands, the rich island, there are some special art settings, and delicious Shima kitchen is worth exploring. There are few buses on the island, and the bike is a choice, but since the question is not often movement or leg strength of the poor will be a good examination, because many sections have a steep slant, compared to the straight island of hard, to push a train up the mountain is absolutely uncomfortable, on the slope is simple heaven and hell!

  • Possibly the lesser known of the 2 main ‘art islands’, it is by far my favorite and most definitely worth a visit if you are in this part of Japan.  more »
  • Removed when crowds, visit during the week of August. Asked Wednesday to Toshima Museum has been closed on Tuesday was checked in advance. See however that many there during the week, though, was quite limited. Teshima Art Museum, "heartbeat" archive"and"lemon hotel"likely but Yokoo Museum closed on weekday, so if you want to see many works must be" checked, or have opened in Toshima WEB visits, we recommend. Works in the above was my goal, so lovely 10-minute half. Islanders who also shakes the greeting with a smile! is a heart with a warm island!
