Naoshima Bath “I love YU”
This is an art facility created by artist Shinro Ohtake where visitors are actually able to take a bath.
“I love YU” was created to provide a place for Naoshima residents to rejuvenate as well as a venue for exchanges between Japanese and international visitors and locals to take place. The exterior and fittings of the bathhouse, from the bath itself to the pictures decorating the walls, the mosaics, and even the toilet fittings, reflect the world of Shinro Ohtake.
The bathhouse is operated by the Naoshima-Town Tourism Association.
Come visit and soak in the tub, and experience art with your entire body.
