Announcement of limited-time-only bathroom viewing program of Naoshima Bath


Naoshima Bath "I♥湯" is an art facility created by artist Shinro Ohtake where visitors are actually able to take a bath while experiencing art in the nude. Usually, patrons view the artwork by bathing in either the male or female baths. However, as the viewing program held in June was very well received, it will be on offer again from this fall. The new program is also for a limited time only. Visitors will be able to view both the male and female bathrooms at the same time, in the form of a viewing taking place from the changing rooms.

We invite you to take this opportunity to appreciate the artwork and compare the subtle differences between the tile artwork in the bathrooms and the collages in the changing rooms.

Photography (limited to personal use) of the interior of the building is only permitted during the viewing program.

Viewing dates:
Saturdays, Sundays, and national holidays from Saturday 14th October, 2017 to Sunday 18th March, 2018.

Viewing times:
10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
* Please note that patrons will not be able to use the baths for bathing purposes during these times. Patrons will be able to bathe as usual from 1:00 p.m

Admission fees:
JPY510 (as per the standard viewing fee)
* Children aged 15 and under: JPY 210 (free entry for children under 3 years of age)
* Naoshima residents: 310 JPY

We look forward to your visit.
