Traveling to Seto-uchi and Art; to Naoshima

A continuation.

I wake up in morning. Oh! it rains! We will plan to go around the Udon shop by retal bicycle. Shock!

Sanuki udon

We will go around Udon shops at the second time. :-) Previous time, I had eaten normal udon at station restaurant. That was a very expensive, ¥800! We will go a udon shop which I had experience previous error. However, today is rains. We couldn't rent a bicycle in rainy day. We will go a walk with umbrella.

I have a map of the Udon shops by tourist information by previous time. I check the shop information to open in morning. You should carefully go to the udon shop on Sunday. Because many shops close on Sunday.

We don't take breakfast at hotel for eating udon.

We ate udon at three shops. We are K.O. Because we are light eater. Three udon shops are very delicious.

You can view Takamatsu tower from a way, Naoshima has a very unique island with arts. It take an hour to Naoshima.

There are many arts in the Museum. Some arts were replaced by last time. The museum and other related facilities were designed by Tadao Ando. The museum has a amazing structure. You can watch arts by walking with losing way. If you visit at first time, I recommend to participate a tour for the museum.

We walked from the museum by downward slope. There are three guest facilities in the Benesse House. The left photo is the Park. and the right is the Beach. Both facilities are built by wood.
