A journey to islands alive with art.

One day, a giant pumpkin appeared on the island pier.

The pier, once an unassuming sight that could be found anywhere,
was reborn as a sight so unique that it could be found nowhere else.

People began to visit from distant cities and even distant countries.
The island transformed itself into something new...

Here, a story featuring art and island was born—a story to be found nowhere else in the world.
How does the story unfold? Visit, and see for yourself.
