Remarkable art installations. Architecture is a bit bewildering - we got lost - and it was very crowded even in February so I dread to think what Summer is like. But worth the journey taken with the whole Naoshima experience.
Naoshima is beautiful, however the Chi Chi Museum was too expensive for only seeing FOUR artists... they also had some weird online ticket service, which as an international person, I was not able to book in with. So we had to wait in like for...More
Site-specific works of James Turrell, Monet, and Walter de Maria. Turrells were mind bending. One of a kind museum for architecture by Tadeo Ando and the art.
We also recommend the nearby Benesse House Museum.
Access to Naoshima is easiest by rapid ferry ride from...More
I had been to Benesse House Hotel and Museum before, but the Chichu was a long wait and we did not go in. This year, it was not crowded and we entered quickly at the appointed time. I had no idea what to expect, but...More
Like many people who reviewed this museum, I really enjoyed it, and I am not "artistic" in the least. I did not find the staff rude or hostile at all. They are quiet and kind, and do their best to keep the environment calm and...More
The entire museum features only 4 artists. But they are given so much space and reverence for their work. You experience the building, the space and the work. Only pretentious part was why we need to take our shoes off to view Monet’s water lilies...More
The Chichu Art Museum was one of the highlights of my trip to Japan. Don't go in expecting a typical museum with paintings and sculptures. There is one room with 5 Monets, but that's not really what this museum is about. It's about experiencing a...More

I believe you would be commuting for at least 6-7h that day so unless you absolutely love one of the artists in the collection I think you mostly ruin a day for yourselves - and I absolutely loved the collection - it just requires more time than you have to spare at this moment.
Chichu Art museum Naoshima registration issue (2 Replies)
Hello! Has anyone had any problems making a reservation for Open Sky at Chichu Art Museum? Every email address I have tried is refused, and deemed illegal, even though all of them are valid.

Thank you very much for the reply. This link is for online ticket purchase, I was looking to book a seat for Open Night Sky event. They definitely still have open slots. I will ask my hotel for help with the booking. Thanks again
Naoshima Island at night (2 Replies)
We will be visiting Naoshima Island April 21st. We have spots reserved at the Chichu Art Museum for the Open Sky Night Program. We cannot order a taxi as the taxi on the island is by phone only - no email. Would it be safe to walk from the Chichu Art Museum back to the Miyanoura Port around 8 in the evening? I understand this to be a 30 minute or so walk. TYIA.

You'll be walking back on the main road where cars come, so just be careful with that. Be sure to have a flashlight. No worries about getting mugged or assaulted by other humans whatsoever.
