Teshima Art Museum, Tonosho-cho

(200+ reviews on the web)
Art Museum
In Teshima Art Museum, admire a single piece of artwork--an ethereal shell-like construction resembling a water droplet at the moment of landing. A vast, white, open space, devoid of pillars and decorations lends an airy feel, while the oval openings on the top allow the sound, light, and wind to interconnect. In addition, water emerges from the ground through the whole day, imitating the museum in miniature form. Contemplate in peace, listen to the soft sounds, and revel in the site's singularity. The cafe serves locally sourced food and drinks. In the souvenir shop, find original books and artwork. To visit Teshima Art Museum on your trip to Tonosho-cho, use our Tonosho-cho vacation builder.

  • A unique experience. Few museums I visited generated me something similar. Architecture nature and art in a perfect community. The entire trip worth it. Get the idea of that is a museum to spend with yourself long moments of peace and contemplation.

  • The museum is a fusion of art and architecture. Is a place where you can spend the entire day astonished by what's happening inside (of course I don't want to tell what there is inside). Absolutely a Sanaa masterpiece
  • just one art installation, but strangely satisfying. you have to experience it yourself.
  • Unbelievable, transcendent experience. You must go.
  • This brought me to the islands and didn't dissapoint.
  • Getting there from Naoshima is not easy or short. But it is worth it. This is an experience for the senses. Simplicity, greatness, surrounded by a beautiful nature. Pure pleasure and astonishment. A must see.
