Pumpkins in Naoshima
Naoshima is an island highly evaluated as an “art island” where the whole island is a museum. Red Pumpkin, the art work of Yayoi Kusama welcomes visitors at Miyaura port. Yellow Pumpkin is located 40 minutes away from the port, along the beach near Tutsuji-so. Both pumpkins are huge works with a stem and black dots painted all over.
