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.

“ Full-service guide that kept our large group moving ”

1 month ago Traveler: Todd -   Tour Guide: Hideo

Hideo was a super tour guide! We booked professional tours through the cruise ship at other destinations, and this tour was very comparable to those, at a fraction of the cost. I can highly recommend Hideo, based on this experience. I helped to organize the tour with Hideo for a group from Cruise Critic, that ended up being 25 people. Hideo consolidated all of the costs (travel, entry fees...

A group of six adults had arranged for Hideo to meet us at the ship and take us to the castle and adjoining gardens and then go on the rope way above the town. We found to our disappointment that Hideo had no interest in the group. He rarely volunteered any information, but did have some answers if we persisted with questions. One of our party was using a walkingstick and he showed no inter...

Hideo was a real find. Our group of 6 engaged him to escort and guide us around Osaka, with transportation and sightseeing through Nara and three days of touring in Kyoto. We found him to be very personable and articulate. Hideo was extremely knowledgeable about each of these destinations, as well as how to navigate them and avoid the crowds. He went above and beyond to make what was a first trip ...

As a private group of 6 individuals on a tightly scheduled vacation, we had requested an 8-hour customized itinerary that would allow us to visit the top 4 attractions in Kyoto and allow us to travel from Tokyo via Shinkansen and return the same evening. We had also requested Hideyoshi-san to arrange a private taxi/van for us as we wanted to spend more time at the sites versus navigating public tr...

We booked an afternoon tour with Hideo, but unfortunately I had an accident as our tour was to begin. Hideo went above and beyond what any guide would do, meeting us at the hospital, arranging transport and even returning the next day to help us make it onto our train on time. Words cannot express how indebted to him we are for his help. You won't find a more compassionate human to spend time with...

Hides wasn’t a guide I expected. He was good in planning the tour and memorizing facts but I like talking to people. Hideo wasn’t open to a free conversation or questions.
