DAY 5: This morning will explore the Katsura detached Palace before leaving Kyoto by bullet train, heading south towards the Seto Inland Sea. The last leg of the journey will be by private bus and then by ferry to the incredible art island of Naoshima—an experience few groups get to have. Naoshima Island and nearby Teshima Island were developed into artistic and cultural centers by a Japanese philanthropist. Take the afternoon to explore numerous art museums and architectural wonders, from the ancient to the modern. Tonight, we will dine together in the hotel’s Japanese restaurant.
