If you have a strong inclination to art but haven’t found your great inspiration yet, then it’s probably time for you to escape to Naoshima Island, Japan’s island of surreal art. Naoshima has become one of the most fascinating art and architecture destinations on earth. Most of the island’s inspiring structures are credited to the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Tadao Ando, thus, it is often referred to as the “Ando Island”.

While the island is dominated by works of Tadao Ando, this groundbreaking project wouldn’t be possible without the big dream of Tetsuhiko Fukutake, founder of Fukutake Publishing Co., Ltd. (now Benesse Corporation), to develop an area where children from around the world could gather in one island in the Seto Inland Sea of Japan. Today, Naoshima is praised as a unique paradise where modern art and architecture exist in harmony with nature and culture.
