Naoshima Island is waiting for you. Naoshima is a small island in the Seto Inland Sea. From Osaka, it takes about 4 hours by express train (no reservations needed); or less than 2 hours by Shinkansen (bullet train).
The first thing I would like to say is that even during the Golden Week, Naoshima is a peaceful and quiet island. Naoshima is off the beaten path, and I really enjoyed it.

On Naoshima, most buildings are hidden, here it's The Benesse House Museum. In addtion to artistic exhibitions, Naoshima focuses on environmental activities.

Though I am usually not a big fan of Modern Art, I would recommend the visit. Actually Naoshima is a beautiful island, very clean and if you’re lucky to have a nice weather, for sure you will enjoy your day.
