NAOSHIMA

Located between Honshu and Shikoku are a number of small islands that form the key features of the Seto Inland Sea. In order to invigorate the local culture and economy, a few have in recent years fostered an arts initiative. One of them - the delightful, small island of Naoshima (Kagawa Prefecture) - now complements its sandy beaches and pretty countryside with a range of galleries and outdoor exhibits that dot the island, and provide a fun search-and-discover adventure in extremely pleasant surroundings. If based on the Shikoku mainland or Okayama Prefecture, Naoshima is certainly doable as a day trip. If travelling from further afield, make use of one of the many cheap lodgings on the island, run by the welcoming locals.
