Travel Tips

A Red Pumpkin Waits For You

I picked up 4 guests from Israel at the port of Miyanoura Port in Naoshima island on September 23rd.  The guests came to Naoshima from Takamatsu and I came from  Uno port in Okayama.    When you arrive at the port, you can find a red pumpkin that is waiting for you.

Chichu Art Museum

First I'd like to tell you one thing.  From this August, you have to get online tickets in advance.  If you don't have them, you have to stand in a long line in front of the museum on that day.
You can appreciate 4 paintings of "water lily" by Claude Monet, "Open fields" by James Turrell, and "Time/Timeless/No Time" by Walter De Maria.
