We arranged a day tour of Naoshima art island with Chizuru from Azamara Quest, which docked at Takamatsu. Chizuru is charming lady, superb tour guide and speaks excellent English. It was easy to detail our day via the Triplelights website beforehand. She met us on the island having given us clear instructions on which ferry to take as she came from elsewhere. We saw far more in Naoshima than we would have done on our own or on a ship’s tour. Chizuru knew the time of all the buses and location of all the stops and could also guide us to all the key sculptures and art houses tucked all around the island quickly. She also advised us to book tickets for the ChiChu Museum (one of the highlights) months earlier and advised us on the best time slot. (On the day we were there it was fully booked until the afternoon and on busy days is fully booked in advance). As it was probably the only time we shall visit this incredible place, I am glad we managed to see most of it - only possible with Chizuru’s assistance. Book with Chizuru and you will have a great day as we did.
Hi Mary, Thank you for your tour review. I appreciate your message with lots of complement and the high evaluation. you visited the island at the best timing, just before the art festival starts. There weren't so many people. So we could see all Art House Project. That is often impossible under the limited time. I'm glad to help you make one of the good memories of your visit to Japan. Thank you Mary!
