We spent good several hours on Inujima, one of the Benesse Art Sites, in Setonaikai inland sea on a brilliant sunny day.


This copper smeltery in Inujima was built in 1909 but only worked for about ten years until the price of the copper suddenly dropped. Then in 2008, a modern artist Yukinori Yanagi and an architect Hiroshi Sambuichi made the ruin into a museum.

Walking on the island and seeing other modern art installations suddenly appear in the rural village scenery was very amusing and peaceful. There were many loquat trees growing on the island. We saw a Japanese sparrowhawk.
