Benesse Art Site Naoshima


Information for visitors to Naoshima Bath "I♥湯"

Naoshima Bath "I♥湯" is an art facility created by artist Shinro Ohtake where visitors are actually able to take a bath (*experience communal bathing, a unique part of Japanese culture, and art in the nude).
Usually, people enter either the male or female baths and appreciate the artwork, but for a limited time we are planning to allow visitors to appreciate both bathrooms at the same time (from the changing rooms) without taking a bath. This is a perfect opportunity for people who feel apprehensive about appreciating the artwork while taking a bath to appreciate it.
This is a great opportunity to appreciate the subtle differences between the tile artwork in the bathrooms and the collages in the changing rooms. You can take photographs of the bathrooms while you're viewing (for personal use only).
