... and explore this beautiful Seto Inland Sea region!



Uno Slope House offers more than just
proximity to Naoshima's internationally renowned modern art museums and the art house project (Chichu Museum, Benesse House Art Museum, Lee Ufan museum, all designed by Tadao Ando). Here you also have easy access to beautiful islands in the Seto Inland Sea which the American writer Donald Richie described as "a place modernity passed by" in his book "The Inland Sea."


After the success of the 1st triennial Setouchi International Art festival in the summer of 2010, Teshima became another art-island of must-visit. In 2013, 2016, even more museums and restaurants were added.



View from Teshima islandThe festival has kept Teshima Art Museum, Boltanski's Heartbeat Archive, Shima-Kitchen, and more art projects on the island. Keep it mind that Uno port has direct access to Teshima island and Shodo-shima island, two of the seven islands, besides the shortest ferry ride to Naoshima island.

The other four islands, Inujima, Ogijima, Megijima, and Oshima were also accessible from Uno via Naoshima or Takamatsu.
