Naoshima Island holidays

The island of Naoshima is located in the Seto Inland Sea, just off the coast between Kobe and Hiroshima. The terrain is mountainous with sandy beaches and a peaceful atmosphere, but it is for contemporary art galleries and exhibits that it is chiefly known. Originally settled as a fishing port based around the port of Tsumuura, Honmura is now the main settlement, where a number of houses have been converted in various art projects, exhibits and installations. Miyanoura port is the main entrance to the island, reached in approximately 20 minutes from Uno on the mainland. Although small enough to see in a single day, an overnight stay is more rewarding as there is much to explore.
