Ogijima is one of the meeting places of the international art festival in Setouchi.
There are a lot of slopes and works of art in this small island.
In addition, because a lot of cats live in this island, this island is called “Cats island”.
The island of a cat, art and a slope･･･
Ogijima is small, but it has big charm.
Guideline of sojourn time ： about 2h
*A ferry sails every two hours.
If you have two hours, you can almost watch all art works.
Let’s secure time more than 2 hours if you want to play with a cat slowly. (○´艸｀)
Because a lot of cats live in this island, this island is called “Cats island”. (○´艸｀)
The place where there are a lot of cats is “the fishing port of the south side” and “Toyotama Hime Shrine”.
*There are not many cats in the other places.
Attention : because many Ogijima’s cats are wild cats, please do not give bait to a cat.
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.57”, “No.58”, and “No.62” personally.
