Art island: Naoshima (2 days) Explore the open-air gallery that is Naoshima, a tiny fishing island of the inland sea, and try to spot all the sculptures scattered along the seashore — there are works by Yayoi Kusama, Niki de Saint Phalle and many others. Experience more art by James Turell, Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock and even works by Claude Monet inside the multiple museums of the island, which buildings have been designed to completely blend in with the natural landscape. Enjoy being on this rural and peaceful island to wind down: go for long walks across the countryside, try to spot random tiny Shinto sanctuaries, explore the cute little streets — and maybe relax at a cat cafe for an hour or two.
