We offer a variety of tours to meet your needs and make your island trip as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

The official guided tour

This is the official guided tour that was so popular at the Setouchi Triennale 2019.
This tour is designed to help you understand the purpose of the Triennale and the efforts so far,
so that you can feel the appeal of the Triennale more deeply.
The Basic Tours, which focuses on new artworks, will include a new course to/from Okayama Prefecture in addition to the course to/from Takamatsu. In addition, there will be the Special Tours based on themes such as the environment, food, and education.

The past official guided tour

In 2019, we offered a guided tour of the islands by chartered boat while viewing mainly new works.
We were able to fully enjoy the island hopping tour and feel the appeal of the Triennale more deeply.

Tours are offered once or twice a day while the Triennale is in session. The number of tours differs depending on the day of the week.
Access to Shodoshima for the C: Shodoshima Tour is by regular ferry. The E: Shamijima Tour is conducted by chartered bus.
All tours depart from and return to Takamatsu Port.
