Stashed among the thousands of uninhabited islands of the Seto Inland Sea, or Setonaikai, you will find three surreal smidges of land scattered with awe-inspiring installations, fascinating museums, art houses and private collections. Naoshima, Teshima and Inujima should be high on the list for any creative connoisseur. This experience will gift you the chance to admire artistic visions from the likes of David Hockney and Gerhard Richter — all set against a majestic backdrop of sand, forest and sea.
