Clever strategy for offering artists an opportunity to transform a site into an artistic creation. The results are quite interesting and varied. An enjoyable afternoon stroll to take in the houses.

I don't know any other way of getting there...but it's worth it. I stayed on Shikoku but would recommend staying on Naoshima.
