Cruise the Setouchi Islands with a local art expert

The Seto Inland Sea (瀬戸内海) or Seto-Naikai is considered Japan’s most charming waterway, a vast emerald sea dotted with some 3,000 islands and islets.

Its mild climate and its islands’ relaxed atmosphere invite comparisons with the Mediterranean Sea.

Naoshima may be the most famous among the Seto Inland Sea art islands, featuring the work of architect Tadao Ando, but there are other islands worth traveling to – Injuma and Teshima.

These artistic islands are highly recommended destinations for art lovers.

With an art expert embark on an extraordinary and exclusive art tour to encounter the life and culture treasured by the local people of Japan’s Setouchi region.

You will visit the Teshima Art Museum, a collaboration between world-renowned architect Ryue Nishizawa and artist Rei Naito. And the ruins of a copper refinery, the heritage of modern industry, reborn as an art museum, the Inujima Seirensho Art Museum.

An exciting journey through the azure waters of the Seto-Naikai with champagne, delicious food and impeccable style in every detail!

Cruising with us is what you would definitely like and what you deserve.
