Teshima Island 豊島

where art thrives

If Naoshima means "the pleasant island", Teshima is called "the prosperous island" because its inhabitants lived there for a long time in opulence thanks to the production of ornamental stones. Today peaceful and bucolic, it is part of the project to integrate art into nature. Contemporary art is gradually invading all the islands of the Seto Sea: the island of Teshima, east of Naoshima, is the latest addition to the great artistic project of La Benesse.
