Art Island Naoshima

Naoshima Island is a small fishing island located in the Seto Inland Sea of Japan. The Benesse Corporation (one of the largest education companies in Japan) commissioned a series of very unique museums and buildings on the island featuring designs by Tadao Ando, James Turrell, Walter De Maria, and paintings by Claude Monet. In addition to this stunning architecture, there are a group of 6 art installations build in traditional houses/areas. It was an amazing experience being on the island, inspiring and quite mysterious.
