What to Expect

When you use ferry from Uji port of Okayama Prefecture, in 25 minutes a giant red pumpkin come into view through the early morning haze clinging to the dockside. Today, Naoshima island has become one of the brightest stars in Japan's contemporary art scene. The architect Tadao Ando designed many buildings such as Chichu Art Museum buried in the ground, Lee Ufan Museum in harmony with nature, and Bennese House Museum and Ando Museum.

 In Chischu Art Museum you appreciate "Open Field" designed by James TURRELL. It is an art as if it were sucked in the light. Other exhibits are 5 paintings of water lily by Claude MONET, and the work "Time / Timelss / No time" by Walter De Maria.
Lee Ufan is a Korean who graduated from Nihon University. He put an emphasis on local stone and space.
Bennese House Museum is a facility that integrates a museum with a hotel, based on the concept "Coexistence of nature, architecture and art." You can enjoy a lot of unique artworks.
Furthermore you can enjoy dotting the beaches. There are 20 outdoor installations such as a giant yellow pumpkin, Naoshima Pavilion, upstairs built of glass in Go-o Shrine.

I do hope you visit Naoshima to appreciate modern arts.

“ Very informative, caring and punctual ”

My family and I had a wonderful 3-days with Hideo in the Osaka area. I had let Hideo know of what I'd like to see based on some reading and he showed me all those sights and added more which were very worth visiting. He is a remarkably energetic man coping very well with the record heat of July 2018 the whole time we were with him. He explained the history and culture very well and helped us greatly with our dietary and other needs. He also helped us purchase onward Shinkansen tickets to Tokyo and explained very well and patiently how to get to the train in Osaka station. You may have to get used to his accent but once you do, he is a charm to listen to. I would definitely take Hideo's guiding again. Thanks Hideo for making our visit so memorable!

“ Day trip in Kyoto ”

We had a lovely day with Hideo, despite the excessive heat and we walked 8 miles! We caught the festival parade, saw all the sites we had on our list and he offered us an extra one the 1,000 gates which we loved at the end. He had the day well planned out, and had a great place picked out for lunch. Thank you to Hideo for a memorable trip to Kyoto!

“ Good tours ”

We had two Hideo tours in Kyoto and one in Osaka. Hideo was well prepared for the tours with maps, tickets and printed tour plants. He coomunicated with me prior to the tours and put together these tours based on my requests. He navigated through paublic transportation system very well. His english is not perfect and sometimes it was difficult to understand him, but we gor buy OK. We wanted local cultural experience and got it.
