Full description
Naoshima, also known as Art Island, is an island town located in the Seto Inland Sea. In Naoshima you see pieces from internationally-renowned artists and architects such as Yayoi Kusama, Tadao Ando, and Ufan Lee.

Meet your guide at the Shin-Ōsaka Station and embark together on the bullet train. Once arrived at Uno Ferry Port, the journey continues with a ferry ride. The world-famous Yayoi Kusama's pumpkin welcomes you at your destination. Here at the Miyanoura port you can grab your rental bicycle or hop on the bus and begin the tour of the island. 

Naoshima offers 3 museums: Chichu Museum, Lee Ufan Museum, and Benesse House Museum. You will have the chance to visit all of the museums which are designed to fit into the natural context. 

All over the island, you can find galleries and outdoor artworks. This place combines nature and contemporary art in a way that the whole island itself feels like a piece of art. 

After a day full of art, take the ferry back to Uno Ferry Port and then back to Shin-Osaka station.
