The Setouchi Triennale 2013


I am very excited.

My sister and I are flying home for Obon this summer and we are going via Takamatsu Airport in Kagawa Prefecture. Our parents are in Imabari, which is in the neighboring Ehime Prefecture, but the airport there is about the same distance away and Takamatsu somehow always has more vacancies on their flights. So we are going to fly into Takamatsu airport.

And what am I excited about? Well, yes, I am excited to be going back home again...but I'm also excited to have a day to see the Setouchi Triennale 2013!!!

It's an amazing art exhibit highlighting various islands in the Seto Inland Sea and we are leaning toward going to see Ogijima (男木島). There are so many islands but this one is small enough to get around on foot and close to Takamatsu Port so it won't take that long to get to. To be quite honest, I have the worst motion sickness and I don't want to ruin the day by getting on a ferry and end up feeding the fish. So the shorter the ferry ride, the better. But also, the island itself looks like a great place to spend the day!

Have you gone already or are you thinking of going? I would love suggestions.

I'm going by the bookstore to buy the Official Setouchi Triennale 2013 Guidebook (Summer/Fall) which are in stores today! x

  2. I can recommend two great blogs, one written by David (who lives in that area) and another one by Dru (who's visited several times). They have oodles of tips and mountains (oceans?) of advice. Here you go:

    Ogijima

    Dru's Misadventures

    You'll find both of them on Google+, too. I've migrated to Google+ because FB, or PRISM, still thinks I'm an abusive criminal. Grin.

    2. Thanks Ru! If you look at Dave's blog, he says thanks too.

      PS: Kaori, if you have specific questions, feel free to ask me or Dave. Dave may know a lot more, but from a "foreigner's" perspective, I may have a better insight.
