Naoshima Island直島


Naoshima has three settlements: Miyanoura, where ferries arrive and depart, Honmura, which was a castle town during the Warring States period, and the fishing port of Tsumuura. An important base for maritime transport starting in the Edo period, today it offers atmospheric historic neighborhoods mingling with modern creative influences. Traditional entertainment also flourished as the territory was under the direct control of the Shogunate during the Edo period. The island's renowned all-women bunraku puppet theater is still performed today.

          Kagawa Main Areas


          Japan's smallest prefecture, Kagawa, may take up just a small corner of Shikoku, but it has grown increasingly popular with the recognition of Naoshima, its "art island" in the Seto Inland Sea between Shikoku and Honshu. Just a stone's throw from the islands, mainland Kagawa's prefectural capital, Takamatsu, holds history in its castle ruins and its pride and joy, Ritsurin Garden, is known as one of the country's best gardens.
