Benesse House
A Modern art museum and resort hotel on the coast of Naoshima Island. The museum is the centerpiece of the Bensese Corporation's art facilities on the island which the building was designed by the famous architect Ando Tadao. Each of the building features its own unique artwork and guest rooms. However what makes this Benesse House special is that it is located on a hill that you can enjoy the view of the sea. 

Chichu Art Museum 
The Chichu Art Museum is a museum that focuses on the rethinking of relationship between nature and people. To avoid meshing with the scenery of the island the museum is mostly built underground. The museums holds artworks by the famous Claude Monet, James Turrell, and Walter De Maria. What makes this museum interesting is how the appearance of art changes by the natural light that shines inside, which gives the museum a different aspect depending on the season.
