Travel Guide - Chichu Art Museum


Art lovers are attracted to Naoshima Island by its active art community and natural beauty. Chichu Art Museum, or art museum in the ground, was opened in 2004 to appreciate the artworks of Walter De Maria, James Turrell, and Claude Monet as well as the atmosphere of the museum itself. Designed by the famous architect Tadao Ando, the museum is as famous for its architecture as it is for its exhibits and impressive garden.
