Uno port is the end of the train from Okaya where you go take the ferry to Naoshima. They have some nice sculptures along the short walk from train station to the ferry pier. I like the narwal sculpture.
Great spot at the end of train line at the ocean and near the ferry and boat to visit the Art Islands of Naoshima and Teshima. An assortment of places to eat and rather quaint in itself. Definitely worth a visit and stay for at...More
Not much here really apart from the access point for the art islands of Naoshima Island and Inujima Island. Some small hostels and ryokan, and local restaurants only. They have tried to 'art' up the place with a couple of sculptures and painting railway stations...More
This is not only a fantastic place to visit the islands with all the comfort you need but it is also a fantastic place to stay. The owner and the staff are extremely nice, make you feel at home, take the time to welcome you...More
Not a lot to see or do here. We stopped for the day on a cruise.
Some artworks and signage pointing out local attractions.
Close to the ferrys and the small town of tamano.
Right nearby the railway station too
This port does not have as much ferries as the Takamatsu Port, but it does feature the bigger islands. I went to Naoshima, Teshima and Shodoshima from this port.
The Teshima and Shodoshima line I took were smaller boats, which I was advised to go...More
Uno is a great base for exploring Naoshima. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would suggest you would need three nights at least to properly enjoy Naoshima and Teshima. The onsen in Uno is also excellent.
Came here for the setouchi triennale 2016.
The staff here are friendly and can help you with queries about luggage and ticketing. They may speak limited English but you will be able to figure out the info.
Quite a well equipped port given the rural...More
Parking lot at Uno Port to go to Naoshima Island (1 Replies)
We will be two couples travelling through Japan by car instead of train at the end of March. We want to take the ferry from Uno Port to Naoshima and spend the night there but we aren't sure what to do with our car. I need advice as I have searched the web to no avail for an answer. I figure our options are to leave the car overnight at the port in a hopefully secure parking facility OR to take the car with us on the ferry to Naoshima. I read on line that the ferry takes cars, but am not sure...More

It's best to buy the 14 day pass and activate it on arrival so you can cover the trip from NRT to Nozawa which is 11,000yen+ than activating it on the 12th and covering Tokyo-NRT which is only 3,000yen. Get the 14 day pass and activate it on arrival.
Naoshima to Teshima and staying on or off the island etc. (2 Replies)
HI We are heading to Japan in Oct. We are planning to visit Naoshima and possibly stay on the island at one of the small guesthouses. I have a few questions: We are coming from Hiroshima where we will spend a good part of the day and thought it would be best to travel at the end of the day to Uno port and stay somewhere there so that we can get an early ferry to Naoshima in the morning. This way we make use of the day time and travel late arvo / early eve. We were then planning to spend...More

If you don’t want to pack/unpack and change hotel it should be fine to do Naoshima as a day trip from Uno. Even with a longer ferry crossing we managed to do it as a day trip from Takamatsu and it too was during the popular Setouchi Triennale period when there were lots of visitors on the island. A friend spent a night in Naoshima and did say it was a unique experience but he was spending the night in Benesse House.
