Naoshima Bath “I♥︎"

This is an art facility created by artist Shinro Ohtake where visitors are actually able to take a bath. "I♥︎" was created to provide both a place for Naoshima residents to rejuvenate and as a venue for exchanges between Japanese and international visitors and locals to take place. The exterior and fittings of the bathhouse, from the bath itself to the pictures decorating the walls, the mosaics, and even the toilet fittings, all reflect the universe of the artist.

The bathhouse is operated by the Town-Naoshima Tourism Association.
Come visit and soak in the tub, and experience art with your entire body.
