A Day At Naoshima (Part 3)

Filed under: Domestic, Shikoku, Trips — myyearinjapan @ 12:01 am

This is my final post about Naoshima, the island famous for modern art that is found between Japan’s largest island of Honshu and its other major island, Shikoku. My first post can be read here and my second post can be found here.

I end my short tour of Naoshima with the pumpkins, the most well known symbol of this island.

Yellow Pumpkin

Most tourist guides or books about the island use this pumpkin sculpture as a symbol for the island, so it's no wonder that it is almost always surrounded by tourists clamorring to take a picture.

Kids play at the beach next to the yellow pumpkin, as if giant pumpkins are always looming over beaches where children play.

Red pumpkin

The yellow pumpkin gets all the glory, but there is also a red pumpkin, right next to the ferry terminal at Miyanoura.
