Explore the art islands off Okayama

Happening once every three years, the Setouchi Triennale is an unforgettable experience for art-lovers, where 12 islands across the Seto Inland Sea become home to works by Japanese and international artists. The scenic locales create space for large-scale, immersive works like Xiang Yang’s The Shore Where We Can Reach, a three-level wooden boat on Shodoshima island; and Christian Boltanski’s La forêt des murmures, which sees 400 wind chimes installed in a forest on Teshima island. The Triennale’s summer edition runs from 19 July–25 August, but there are plenty of permanent works to see if you’re there this month, including Takashi Nishibori’s Corridor of Time (pictured) on Ogijima island.
