Higashiyama Kaii Art Museum beside the Great Seto Bridge
Works by landscape painter Kaii Higashiyama (1908-1999) are on display in this museum with an unbeatable view of the Great Seto Bridge. Kaii Higashiyama has roots in one of the little islands of the Seto Sea. His grandfather is from a nearby island called Hitsuishijima.
This location has an expertly curated collection and is a favorite spot to take a nice break and enjoy views of the sea.
The Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum
Celebrated sculptor Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988) hoped that his former studio in Kagawa Prefecture would be a place of inspiration for others.
The Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum Japan allows visitors to be immersed in an atmosphere of creativity. Some of the works on display are works in progress and some are on loan from The Noguchi Museum in New York City.
An island community that is thriving because of its art culture, Naoshima in the Seto Inland Sea attracts visitors from all over the world. Known for its polka-dot pumpkin, museums built partially underground and its super friendly island atmosphere, Naoshima is a must-visit location. We hope you can appreciate this jewel in the Seto and be part of its success story as an island rejuvenated by art and international friendship.
