If you want to experience remnants of the Japanese military, try to talk to or deal with the white suited guards at this museum. They bark orders, won’t answer questions, act like drill sargents and generally turn the experience into a nightmare. Trying to figure...More

If you like art and architecture this place is must see. All buildings build for the museums in Naoshima are really worth to go and explore, Chichu Art Museum is definitely one of them.

I think you can access without entrance fee (the shop anyway). Cafe lovely, great panoramic window and view and food good. Shop small.
