This is a typical itinerary for this productStop At:
Chichu Art Museum, 3449-1, Naoshima-cho, Kagawa-gun Kagawa Prefecture
Chichu Art Museum
Chichu Art Museum was constructed in 2004 as a site rethinking the relationship between nature and people. The museum was built mostly underground to avoid affecting the beautiful natural scenery of the Seto Inland sea. Artworks by Claude Monet, James Turrell, and Walter De Maria are on permanent display in this building designed by Tadao Ando. Despite being primarily subterranean, the museum lets in an abundance of natural light that changes the appearance of the artworks and the ambience of the space itself with the passage of time, throughout the day and all along the four seasons of the year.
Taking form as the artists and architect bounced ideas off each other, the museum in its entirety can be seen as a very large site-specific artwork.
Duration: 1 hourStop At:
Benesse House Museum, Godanji, Naoshima-cho, Kagawa-gun 761-3110 Kagawa Prefecture
Benesse House is a facility based on the concept of coexistence among nature, architecture, and art. The Museum, incorporating a museum and a hotel, opened in 1992, followed by additional lodging facilities in the buildings known as Oval (opened in 1995), Park, and Beach (both of which opened in 2006), for a total of four buildings accommodating guests, plus a restaurant, cafe, spa and shop open to the general public. Contemporary art is displayed not only within the Museum galleries, but also in all parts of the buildings and surrounding area. Guests can engage with artworks everywhere they go, digest the experience at leisure in their rooms, and emerge to be inspired by art once more. Benesse House is a place where people can explore art, nature, architecture, and their own thoughts in a multi-layered and synergistic fashion. The complex, intended to blend increasingly into the natural environment of Setonaikai National Park as the years go by, was entirely designed by Tadao Ando. It is meant to be appreciated with the entire body, with long ramps, stairs, and passages to traverse, and with natural light from outside pouring in through apertures, weaving together the indoors and outdoors.
Duration: 1 hourStop At:
Lee Ufan Art Museun, 1390 Azakuraura, Naoshima-cho, Kagawa-gun 761-3110 Kagawa Prefecture
A museum resulting from the collaboration between internationally acclaimed artist Lee Ufan, presently based mainly in Europe, and architect Tadao Ando.
The Ando-designed semi-underground structure houses paintings and sculptures by Lee spanning a period from the 1970s to the present day. Lee's works resonate with Ando's architecture, giving visitors an impression of both stillness and dynamism. Located in a gentle valley surrounded by hills and the ocean, the museum offers a tranquil space where nature, architecture and art come in resonance with each other, inviting to peaceful and quiet contemplation, in a society overflowing with material goods.
