Naoshima Bath "I ♥ 湯" is an art facility created by artist Shinro Ohtake where visitors are actually able to take a bath while experiencing art in the nude. Usually, patrons view the artwork by bathing in either the male or female baths. However, we will hold the viewing program during Setouchi Triennale 2019. The program is for a limited time only. Visitors will be able to view both the male and female bathrooms at the same time, in the form of a viewing taking place from the changing rooms.

We invite you to take this opportunity to appreciate the artwork and compare the subtle differences between the tile artwork in the bathrooms and the collages in the changing rooms.

Photography (limited to personal use) of the interior of the building is only permitted during the viewing program.
