瀬戸内海に浮かぶアートの島・直島(なおしま)では、美術館に泊まることができます。ベネッセハウス(Benesse House)は直島にある現代美術に特化した美術館で、ホテル機能も一体化しています。宿泊者は、美術館の閉館後の夜にも静かに館内のアート作品を鑑賞することができるという、特別な体験ができる宿です。美術館とホテルが一体となった施設「ミュージアム」(1992年)、「オーバル」(1995年)、「パーク」「ビーチ」(2006年)があります。建築設計は、安藤忠雄さん。

Opened at Benesse Art Site Naoshima in 1992, Benesse House is both a museum and a hotel, incorporating guest rooms and space for display of contemporary art. Benesse House offers guests opportunities to get close to great art and spend a uniquely rewarding time in dialogue with the works and with themselves.

Since then, the Chichu Art Museum and other art facilities have opened one after another on Naoshima and on the nearby islands of Teshima and Inujima, drawing countless people to the islands and fostering positive interaction between visitors and island residents. People living on Naoshima and other islands have renovated their homes to offer lodgings where guests can relax and enjoy the local atmosphere. The leisurely passage of time, conversations with people you meet, beautiful scenery, silence at night… all of these make up the fabric of day-to-day life on these islands in the Seto Inland Sea, and to experience these is to experience the islands themselves. Staying overnight will greatly enrich your trip and deepen your appreciation of Benesse Art Site Naoshima.

“Benesse House”, “Chihu Art Museum” and Lee Ufan Museum. Three art museums of Naoshima island were designed by Tadao Ando, the internationally renowned architect.

“Benesse Art Site Naoshima” is the collective name for all art-related activities conducted by Benesse Holdings, Inc. and Fukutake Foundation on the islands of Naoshima and Teshima in Kagawa Prefecture and on Inujima island in Okayama Prefecture.

Our fundamental aim is to create significant spaces by bringing contemporary art and architecture in resonance with the pristine nature of the Seto Inland Sea, a landscape with a rich cultural and historical fabric.
Through contacts with art and nature, sceneries and inhabitants of the Seto Inland Sea region, we seek to inspire visitors to reflect on the meaning of Benesse’s motto – Well-Being.
In all our ongoing activities, we are committed to foster a relationship of mutual growth between art and the region, aiming to make a positive contribution to the local communities.
