Fodor's Review

Chichu means "inside the earth," and this museum built into a hillside overlooking Naoshima's south coast lives up to its name. Designed by the internationally recognized architect Tadao Ando, the museum is a work of art in itself. The Chichu exhibits works by Claude Monet, Walter de Maria, James Turrell, and other major artists in natural light. The Monet gallery is breathtaking. Buy tickets at the office 50 yards down the road; during busy periods, you may have to wait to enter.
