Naoshima Highlights Tour Appreciate the contemporary art in resonance with the beautiful nature

Naoshima is nicknamed a holy island of contemporary art. That small island is also a major venue for Setouchi Triennale; a contemporary art festival held every three years in the Seto Inland Sea area.


Located in the tranquil Seto Inland Sea, a small island, Naoshima is full of contemporary arts and architectures.
Why so? Artists and architects have sympathized with a project aiming at creating significant places by bringing contemporary arts and architectures in resonance with the nature of the Seto Inland Sea.

While viewing the beautiful Seto Inland Sea, a 50-minute cruise takes you to the island from Takamatsu Port in Shikoku.
We'll visit various art sites and architectures designed by young hopeful artists, great masters of art, and world-famous architects.
