Where else in the world would you find modern art museums, installations and sculptures dotted about all over coastal islands? Benesse House is the centrepiece of this modern yet uniquely Japanese experience, and the only luxury accommodation on the island. Four distinct rooms have artworks by the artists featured in the museum under the same roof, while three other buildings offer seaview rooms and beachside suites. Choose between terrace dining at their French restaurant, or modern Japanese cuisine at Issan underneath the museum. Several works by Tadao Ando amongst other artists can easily be visited from here, and then explore the works on Tejima and Inushima islands as well. This is an unmissable world-class experience for contemporary art lovers.
