Naoshima does not look like typical Japan. There are no geishas, maid cafes or castles. Yet there is a sense of place. There are elements that are universal, from the sun bathed white beaches and the untouched forests and wooded peninsulas that touch the water’s edge. There outdoor art installations invite you to come closer, daring you to walk amongst them and prompting you to reflect on the notions of self and reality. On the other hand the gracious hospitality and punctuality remind you that you are in Japan, making it an effortless pleasure to be here. If you are staying at Benesse House, the Issen Restaurant provides good western or Japanese options, with the beautiful Naoshima landscape in the background.
