Shodoshima is the largest island that is a part of the Setouchi Triennale art festival, which takes place in the Seto Inland Sea area every three years. In order to make the most efficient use of your time on the island, you need to be able to drive around. The artwork in the Mito Peninsula area is often missed as there are not too many buses that service the southern end of the island. I had to do some strategic planning of shuttle bus timings as I did not rent a car. I even hitchhiked at one point! But, here's a quick look at some of the works I saw in Spring 2016 and why you should try to make it to this more remote part of the island if you can.
