Art Museum · Museum
A work of art its own right, Chichu Art Museum is built into the subtropical landscape of the southern side of Naoshima Island. Most of the gallery remains invisible from the outside, while a scattering of minimalist concrete structures peaking over the foliage provides only a hint of what lurks inside. Step in to discover a permanent exhibit of the famed water lilies by Claude Monet, as well as works by Walter De Maria and James Turrell. Take a break at the onsite cafe, which offers picturesque views of the Inland Sea. Start your trip to Naoshima-cho by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
