One of the main reasons we decided to travel to Japan was to visit the art islands of Naoshima, Teshima and Inujima - and they didn't disappoint. Chichu Art Museum is breathtaking inside and out. The building designed by Tadao Ando is a work of art in itself, but the art works and installations in Chichu add to its perfection.

Very little art on show and you have to queue before viewing each artists work there are only three artists work on show and they each have their own room the Monet name is the one that is used to attract the public but they are not the best water lilies paintings I have seen

I went on a weekday. Overcast with light rain in the morning - this meant less visitors on the island (the sun came out in the afternoon, but after the potential day trippers postponed their trips). This museum has exhibits that have limits on how many people can enter at a time, so I'd assume on most days you jave... More

This will twist your brain for ever ! I have never been into modern art, but I strongly recommend this place since you will find so many collections which will transport you in so different ways. the Architecture of the building is simply amazing, you have the feeling that you are living in a dream (inception style). Definitely go to... More

Four unbelievable spaces, wonderfully designed by Tadao Ando to house the art. Absolutely top contemporary art gallery.

Not stroller accessible. But worth dragging carrying your child through. There's an alien sphere in the basement and you can walk inside a blue painting upstairs. Other than that it is must see Ando Tadao.

I would prefer rating this museum a 3 1/2 rather than 4. The architecture is very interesting in the sense that it's underground with a clever use of natural light. It's a concrete structure. Staff are all dressed in white and visitors are asked to stay quiet. It feels institutional. Visitors are not allowed to take photos of the art... More

This museum is undoubtedly one of the best contemporary art museums in the world. It was a mind blowing visit for me because I normally think art is pretty boring, but my daughter convinced me that it was a must do. I discovered the amazing light installations of James Turrell and have since seen more of his work in Canberra,... More

I found this museum so special, one of the best I have ever visited. The architecture is amazing, and the three artists featured there are perfect, fitting into the vibe seamlessly
