One of the first things you see once you get off the ferry

It features many art museums – like Chichu, Benesse House, Lee Ufan museum and various art house projects. The attractions also include an obscure James Bond museum, a cat cafe and  an arty bath house.

One of the biggest attractions are the giant pumpkins by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama:
