DETAILED ITINERARY
Destination 01: Teshima Art Museum

Teshima Art Museum Art Island: Teshima Private Package Tour

The main attraction on Teshima is the Teshima Art Museum, one of the most intriguing contemporary artworks in Japan. Standing amongst terraced rice fields, the simple concrete structure stimulates its visitors’ senses with the play of water drops on a concrete surface. Several more artworks are scattered around the island’s three fishing villages. Most are open almost everyday, especially the larger museums and outdoor installations, however some of the smaller artworks are only open on weekends and holidays.

Entrance fee (separate from tour price, to be purchased on the spot)
 JPY1570 per person

 

Destination 02: Les Archieves du Coeur

Les Archieves du Coeur Art Island: Teshima Private Package Tour

Another permanent artwork on the island is Les Archives du Coeur (“Heart Archives”), located in a small building along the beach in the eastern outskirts of Karato. It is one of multiple locations across the world where visitors can make recordings of their heartbeat and listen to the recorded heartbeats of other people in a slightly spooky environment. The same French artist, Christian Boltanski, also created The Last Class at the Echigo Tsumari Art Triennale.

JPY520 per person

 

Destination 03: Teshima Yokoo House

Teshima Yokoo House Art Island: Teshima Private Package Tour

The “Teshima Yokoo House”, a collaboration between artist Tadanori Yokoo and architect Yuko Nagayama, was created by altering and renovating an old private house located in a hamlet in the Ieura District, facing the harbor that forms the entrance to Teshima Island. Making full use of the building’s existing layout, the exhibition areas are divided into a “Main House,” a “Warehouse,” and an “Outhouse,” displaying 11 two-dimensional works. Other features-a stone garden with a pond, and a cylindrical tower-are devoted to installations, so that the art spaces seem to expand symbolically to cover the entire site, making it a philosophical zone that simultaneously calls to mind thoughts of both life and death.
