A Red Pumpkin Waits For You

I picked up 4 guests from Israel at the port of Miyanoura Port in Naoshima island on September 23rd.  The guests came to Naoshima from Takamatsu and I came from  Uno port in Okayama.    When you arrive at the port, you can find a red pumpkin that is waiting for you.

On the way to Chichu Art Museum, we dropped in at a yellow pumpkin.  Those pumpkins are the works of Kusama Yayoi.  She is a pioneer in Modern art in Japan.  Other works are Naoshima Pavilion, yelow and  black boats, and the like.

Chichu Art Museum

First I'd like to tell you one thing.  From this August, you have to get online tickets in advance.  If you don't have them, you have to stand in a long line in front of the museum on that day.
You can appreciate 4 paintings of "water lily" by Claude Monet, "Open fields" by James Turrell, and "Time/Timeless/No Time" by Walter De Maria.

Benesse Museum

You can see a lot of paintings and objects such as "100 Live and Die", "Time Exposed", "Three Chattering Men" and the like in the museum.  Those are very unique objects.  I'm sure that those works attract you a lot.

“ A in and full day ”

We enjoyed touring the Shihmizu area with Hideo. He was waiting for us when we got off the ship and took us to many places. Our only suggestion for the future is that because he is rather soft-spoken a microphone and speaker would be helpful as it was difficult to hear him in the back of the van. Other than that we wholeheartedly recommend him

Hideo have us a full day at Kyoto covering major sites and selected a great lunch place. He was knowledgeable about history and each site, and spoke good English.

But we did want an overview and got that and want to re...
