Uno Port 宇野港

Art's first port of call

To reach Naoshima and the other art islands in the Seto inland sea, you'll probably need to go through Uno Port. You'll immediately be immersed in local works of art, because here too, the Setouchi Triennale has changed many things.

There is also a huge fish, called Chinu - the black sea bream of Uno, composed entirely of waste washed up by the waves and picked up in the area in 2010 by the artist collective Yodogawa Technique.

Atsushi Ozawa is an artist who works with iron, and his work "Memory of ship's hull" is on display, an anchor of the Japanese Imperial Navy (1872-1947) reconstituted by recovering abandoned materials in Tamano. In 2016, he recovered all the abandoned bicycles in Tamano he could find, then heated, hammered, and welded the metal to create new bicycles. These unique bicycles can now be rented by tourists to explore the town.
