【2023直島旅】⑤ 安藤忠雄氏による傑作の一つ、地中美術館へ(後編)



In late February 2023, I traveled to Naoshima for a holiday. First trip in a long time! Episode 5. After enjoying the Chichu Art Museum, We had a light meal at the Chichu Café inside the museum.





09. 地中カフェでくつろぐ / Relax in a subterranean café

店内のようす / Inside the store


We spent 1.5 hours viewing the works. It was a wonderful exhibition space with beautiful works of art that I would have loved to spend all the time admiring. (Photography is basically prohibited at Chichu Art Museum. Only the entrance and café are open for photography.)





カフェラテ Café Latte (660 yen)


We'll have a light meal at the "Chichu Cafe." I thought the mugs were misprints, but they are a representation of the museum's structure. It was sold at the souvenir store.





スモークサーモンのベーグルサンドイッチとカフェラテ / Bagel Sandwich with Smoked Salmon, with cafe latte(780 yen)


The bagel itself was very tasty, as well as the salmon.





照り焼きチキンのライスバーガー直島のり付き / Rice burger with teriyaki chicken and Naoshima seaweed (780 yen)


Just the right amount of cooked rice and a sweet and spicy teriyaki chicken sandwich. Delicious.





10. 地中美術館から海を眺める / View of the sea from Chichu Art Museum


I went out from the back of the cafe.


The city of Takamatsu can be seen across the sea.


Time flies by as you gaze at the beautiful islands of the Seto Inland Sea.





11. 帰りたくない / Chichu Art Museum with a beautiful exit flow line


We stayed for about 2.5h, including the exhibition space and the cafe. We are sorry to leave, but we plan to have many more activities tomorrow. We will leave the museum at sunset.


The setting sun was creating beautiful shadows of trees on the concrete walls. By the way, those staying at Benesse House have the privilege of re-entry for the duration of their stay. It is a good deal. 





12. 宿泊者専用バスでホテルへ / Take a private bus for guests to the hotel


To be continued.
