After about an hour on a ferry from Takamatsu Port, you will arrive at Miyanoura Port, and be welcomed by Yayoi Kusama's “Red Pumpkin”, the symbol of Naoshima.
On Naoshima, which is known as an art island, art is blended into island life. "Chichu Art Museum" and "Benesse House Museum" were designed by the world-famous architect Tadao Ando. The "Art House Project" utilizes many unused houses in the town.
In addition to art, Naoshima is full of attractions. This beautiful island is rich in nature and delights visitors all year round. The arrival of spring brings the blooming of island azaleas. In summer you can enjoy swimming and fishing in the sea. There are many restaurants and cafes where you can taste the delicious fish of the Seto Inland Sea. At the Marine station “Naoshima”, you can find many local souvenirs.
