Hello everyone!

Usually Andrew writes our blog, but today I want to write about my recent trip with my sisters.

Do you know there is an art festival around Setonaikai area?

It is called Setouchi International Art Festival. click here

Me and my two sisters went there last weekend.

We stayed there for three days.

On the first day:

We went to Teshima-island.

 It was rainy so we were very disappointed but it was actually fun and relaxing.

Here are some pictures from Teshima-island.

Teshima-island was very quiet, beautiful place. Artists from different countries are showing their works in old houses.

We all loved this island.

On the second day:

We went to Naoshima island. Naoshima is probably the most famous island of all because it has many pieces by famous artists.

Also there is a famous museum called Chichu Bijutsukan by the famous architect Tadao Ando.

We were not allowed to take pictures here. It was very cool museum.  click here for more info.
 
Overall we had a good time, but it was too crowded and we had to wait for so long to do anything.

Of course, we had some good food. We had Sanuki-Udon and fresh seafood from the area. Yummy!!

It was a great weekend!

Thank you for reading.
