Art House Project, Naoshima-cho

Art House Project allows Japanese and foreign artists and architects to turn abandoned buildings into large-scale art installations that help visitors discover the everyday life of a small fishing village. Scattered around the neighborhood, the houses are almost impossible to find without a map, some help from locals, and interaction with other travelers, which makes the whole experience seem like a treasure hunt. Do not miss a replica of the Statue of Liberty and the glass staircase at the Go'o Shrine. Put Art House Project at the forefront of your travel plans using our Naoshima-cho trip itinerary planner .

  • Lovely village and several installations to visit : some were superb and others were a joke . Overall worth visiting and worth the inclusive package price . Some of the free experiences were better!  more »
  • These are 6 houses converted into museums. First floor, find them because some do not present any inscription or indication so we pass in front without seeing anything. Second floor, find an interest because 2 have any interest the rest "help" as one of the sites that shows a room with a dozen wooden flowers on the tatamis and ... That's all!!!!
