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.

  • First of all, the location is great. Outside on the hills of terraced fields facing the blue sea. Work is like coming out in the science fiction movie alien architecture. Overwhelmed by the experience until now and into space. The sound of the wind, moving water, strangely relaxed for a while without thinking, was sitting. You want to go again. At peak times will be to wait in ticket is suspicious. We recommend that you go have time so there is time for the ferry.

  • Will be seized with distinctive emotions. Is the uncanny sense of do not know go and can't be explained. There is only silence, what you feel or think is is left to each. No sense of time was just standing. It was crystal clear. I wonder what are rainy and cloudy days.

  • The Museum can't be described. Wilts be experienced. Introduces the nature, or part in your course only and all that.

  • It was the best masterpiece I have ever seen! Better than all Naoshima galleries. You must plan as much time as possible, you can do re-entry too. Every minute it looks different! I would like to see it on the rainy day too - it should be looking even more interesting! Pros: have warmer socks and consider renting the bike or taking the bus from Teshima ports.
  • 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
  • Powerful art that can bring you to tears. We're surrounded by beauty. Worth the trip to Teshima just for this.
  • 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.
  • This museum is incredible I’ll come back again for sure!
