多啦丘丘The name, though not as well known as Master Ii, is a national treasure-class architect in Japan. He built the museum's buildings underground to avoid damaging the Seto Inland National Park's view. From the sky, one simple geometry openings to the sky ～ Earth Museum is also named for this. No photos can be taken inside the museum, the pictures taken outside have been very shocking. The architect's use of light and geometry is almost to the point of peaking. There are not many exhibits in the museum, but there are many breathtaking: Monet's Water Lilies, James • Turrell (James Turrell) Open Sky/Blue Planet Sky and so on. Only the eyes can understand the charm of art! ! !
LyviaGThe free shuttle bus is not very frequent. After visiting Lee Ufan Art Museum, I have to wait for half an hour to get the next bus, so I chose to walk to benesse house museum. Although there is an uphill road, the scenery along the way is also worthwhile Up. I think this museum is the most vivid and interesting of the three museums, not particularly obscure art. It is particularly worth mentioning that after visiting the museum, go down the stairs and walk to the beach. There are many outdoor art projects, don’t miss it!
宫主爱From Dizhong Art Museum to Yellow Pumpkin, you don’t have to spend time waiting for the minibus. Just walk there. It’s 20 minutes. It’s all downhill, relaxed, just a little bit sun-dried, and you will pass the Lee Ufan Art Museum on the way. There was a forked road in front of the art museum, and the sign was not very clear. We were walking along the main road, and a kind Japanese lady chased us and gestured to ask if we were going to Yellow Pumpkin. It turns out that walking along the main road (the bus is feasible) is a mountain-climbing road, which is very tiring. On the right hand side, the path passing by the Lee Ufan Art Museum is not only downhill, but also a lawn and seascape along the way. Not only the scenery is good, but there are many artworks along the road. Although it is not possible to take pictures inside the Lee Ufan Art Museum, it is good to take pictures of artworks along the way.
宫主爱The Ando Museum is in the main village of Naoshima, which is far from the Chichu Art Museum. You must take the island’s minibus. The Ando Museum looks like an ordinary small Japanese village house with a low wall. Open the curtain and enter the courtyard. The small courtyard is covered with small rocks like the dry landscape of Kyoto. There is only a conical glass cover in the courtyard, which is the main source of natural light in the underground space. Ando, the master of light and shadow, made this little light to make the dark underground more interesting.
宫主爱What attracted me to Naoshima was the pumpkin, but the yellow pumpkin facing the sea. But in fact, the red pumpkin is better to shoot. It is right next to the Miyaura Port. You can see it when you disembark. The red pumpkin has a large area and can be photographed in 360 degrees. It is easy to block people behind the pumpkin. The yellow pumpkins are not so good to take pictures. Not only are they far away, waiting for the bus in the past was time-consuming, and to photograph the yellow pumpkins against the background of the sea, one had to wait in line. The angle is limited, the queue is time-consuming, and the time left for taking pictures is very limited, and the two flickers have to be given to others.
宫主爱Obviously it looks like a diamond. Why is it called a "violin"? Perhaps the inner world of the artist is beyond our understanding. Pieces of triangular metal plates are spliced together, and they look like crumpled paper balls. It's really beautiful under the blue sky. It penetrates the sun and the wind. You can enter inside and look up at the blue sky outside the white mesh. The same works by Fujimoto Sou, and the "distant hills" outside the Shanghai Himalayas Museum.

Naoshima, located in the Seto Inland Sea which is also known as the art island, is getting popular among the tourists. With beautiful ocean views and colorful artworks displayed open-air around the island, Naoshima became the center of Japan’s showcase of contemporary arts.

Rent a bicycle or car if you want to travel around Naoshima in a day!
Visit the Besesse House Art Museum at the Setouchi Art Festival. The museum is connected to the hotel on a hillside with two restaurants, the Japanese and Western styles. I once checked the hotel room of the official website. The most popular is Oval. The interior is decorated with artworks. There are a total of six rooms. I booked it very early. There are more Park rooms (but I hesitated later...), the beach has a good view. For the Seto Inland Sea, it is a family room for four people. There are also a few artworks outside the museum. I think it should not be full, but it doesn't matter, maybe I will go again in the future?
When it comes to going to Japan in the New Year, it is either buying a blessing bag or not paying much attention to the usual travel purposes such as shopping for food. It is not uncomfortable to spend time in the hotel and see what sunsets are. This time I chose to live at the Benesse House in Naoshima. Designed by Tadao Ando, the
Benesse House has four buildings: the Museum and Hotel Museum opened in 1992, Oval in 1995, and Park and Beach opened in 2006. In the rooms and buildings, you can see the artworks displayed, thus creating an experience of art, architecture, nature and life. The price of
Beach starts at 70,000 yen and is in front of the beach and the Seto Inland Sea. The room is large and has 61 square meters. This room is decorated with the artwork of Liu Xingdian. There is also an artist's album on the desk for reading.
After dinner, come to lounge, look at red and white, eat bowls of new year soba noodles.
Before midnight, everyone came to the Yasaka Shrine to worship. Then count down at the guardian shrine. Drive to the top of the mountain to welcome the first sunshine of the New Year. After the whole event, I went back to the room and slept for a few hours, then went for a walk from the beach to eat breakfast, drink Tusu wine, and experienced such a traditional Japanese New Year project.
