I took a weekend trip with Hiroko to Naoshima, a small island between the main island of Japan, Honshu, and adjacent Shikoku. We slept in a Pao
, and explored the absolutely fantastic Benesse Contemporary Art Museum
. There is an obvious recurring theme of nature and art melding together which could be felt throughout the place. It was kind of weird, actually. There were works on the beach, and works just scattered about, almost haphazardly. No doubt, the walls of the museum stretched far beyong the physical limitations of the building and went on into the vast ocean before us.
