Teshima Art Museum, Tonosho-cho

4.6
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.

  • And presented in a Museum before, on TV or magazines never go to, since it's something so good? That is where I had been. A mysterious space. I was an illusion that was separated from the present space. You can feel next to the nature of the majestic Earth, water and sky in the artifacts, while the building is. In the building is forbidden pictures with loud chatter. If you don't go you know. Would be interested in only one place, so let's go and experience. Value all the way to go is where it is.

  • Only one work of art. In the terraced rice fields suddenly appeared, a strange building. Such spatial flows inside and of the time and used many, many times.

  • If you do not agree with that garment a little taken aback we also pass on, but I'm sympathetic because ... Helpful. Big sit carefully within the space nature it's nice to see that change. There may be latency in order to enter the Museum. I waited a couple of hours. When you get off your shoes to get socks or stockings have a better report. The Interior is bare.

  • Unexpected. This museum is in the middle of a gorgeous island. Best time to come would be around spring when there are more flowers and it isn't as cold. The museum features one permanent modern installation and not more, there is also a cute souvenir shop right next to the museum itself. Would recommend as a part of a grand tour of Teshima
  • Outstanding! We made a quick trip to the island just to go to the museum (Rented an electric bike from the Ieura port to zip across the island and back in under 2 hours). It was totally worth it to the visit the museum. After spending time on Noashima we didn't think we could be even more surprised but this museum is well worth a visit. I don't want to ruin the experience as the discovery is a fun part of it but I highly recommend.
  • There’s no direct ferry to this island. So you have to get to Naoshima first and transfer to this island. The ferry schedule is sparse. So check the schedule. There’s really not much to see. The structure is kinda cool but that’s about it. There is nothing on the island. Don’t expect to find any decent food there.
  • Beautiful space. A great experience to visit, unfortunate no pictures are allowed. Recommend walking through the woods up from the port.
  • Seemingly in the middle of nowhere, a stark yet soft concrete egg emerges from its surroundings. I had no idea that once inside I would find it even more mesmerising than I found the structure itself. If you're visiting any of the surrounding islands, you have to come to Teshima even just for this one place.
