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
Island hopping is a major activity for Takamatsu visitors, and going to Chichu art museum should definitely be on your agenda!
The museum was designed by Ando, a world renowned Japanese Architect. The building has no exterior, as all the space are excavated as an...More
I brought my parents to the Chichu Art Museum - they are not particularly interested in art, however they had an amazing experience. This was definitely a highlight of our entire trip, and one of the most interesting and beautiful galleries I have ever been...More
As some have commented before, this museum prides itself in giving a "true" experience of art. And this results in conformity.
In each room, for every art work (beware, there are only the four that are advertised, not more) you are told (sometimes in person,...More
Chichu has a number of internationally acclaimed artists who have contributed. The museum limits the number of people, so you never feel that the crowd is detracting from the exhibit. Be sure to reserve tickets well in advance!
The place is very special, super modern and sometimes disconcerting. The pieces of art are very special and will, for some, immerse the visitor in the heart of the art itself. The architecture is concrete based and represents an art work in itself. Not a...More
This was absolutely the highlight of Naoshima for us. The architecture matches the Art perfectly to the point that the building is part of the experience. Build your trip around this one. Tickets need to be booked online.
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... 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.
