Benesse House Museum

Benesse House Museum and Arts Precinct is located on the island of Naoshima in the Seto Inland Sea of Japan. This unique facility combines the functions of both museum and hotel and there are few places in the world where one may experience this combination of art and architecture in such a sublime coastal location.

Naoshima lies some 13 kilometres north of Takamatsu, this island and many small, surrounding islands are known collectively as Naoshima. A hilly island covered in granite and weathered soil, Naoshima has few level areas, but the winding coastline reveals the natural beauty that islands of the Inland Sea are known for, with stretches of white, sandy beach accented by green pine trees.

Designed by Tadao Ando.
