Benesse Art Site Naoshima

A Mecca for minimalists

Naoshima, Africa

The fundamental aim of the art sites on Naoshima and Teshima islands is to create signifi­cant spaces by allowing  contemporary art and architecture to resonance with the pristine nature of the Seto Inland Sea, a landscape with a rich cultural and historical fabric. They seek to inspire visitors to reflect on the meaning of Benesse's motto - Well-Being. More information here:
