Itinerary

Stop At: 三原内港西公園, 3 Chome-1 Minatomachi, Mihara, Hiroshima 723-0017, Japan

“Setouchi” is drawing global attention. The Setouchi International Art Festival goes without mention, but each island is striving to promote its region by art. The small island of Kosaki, with a population of under 10, was chosen as a pre venue for the Hiroshima Triennale 2020, a festival of modern art in the Hiroshima area. This island hopping cruise will explore both Kosaki Island, and Momo Island, an island where art is reviving the region. This tour will start from Mihara Port, a 5 minute walk from Mihara Station which thrived as a castle town in earlier days and is now convenient for shinkansen use. Kosaki Island is 15 minutes from Mihara Port, and is called “the island closest to a shinkansen station”. The captain of the cruise boat will guide you both to the island and after we land. We will be loading bicycles onto the boat so that you can enjoy cycling within the island after we land.
