Honjima is a central island of Shiwaku Islands in the west of Kagawa.
This island prospered in Suigun Navy during the age of civil strife in Japan.
Therefore traditional cityscape is left in this island.
In addition, there is Seto-ohashi which is one of the most beautiful bridge in Japan on the east side of this island.
So, the scenery of this island is very beautiful.
A lot of art works in connection with water and a ship are displayed in this island.
In addition, this island is also “cat island” which many cats live in.
Guideline of sojourn time ： about 3h (When you use the rent‐a‐bicycle.)
If you have 3 hours, you can almost watch all art works.
We can rent a bicycle in the facilities of the port.
There is a lot of art works which I do not introduce here. Please try to go this island, and watch all art work!
*Because there is an art work that photography is not possible, please be careful.
All artwork is very splendid.
The particularly recommended artwork is “No.141”, “No.142”, and “No.190” personally.

As for the islands of the Seto Inland Sea, not only the art work but also the scenery of the islands is splendid.
When you will visit islands of the Seto Inland Sea, let’s enjoy the scenery of nature and the town by all means.
Many cats are living in the islands of Seto Inland Sea.
(“Sanagishima Island” and “Aoshima Island” are famous as an island of the cats in the Seto Inland Sea.)
I could come in to contact with many cats in this island, too.
