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.

  4. How to get to Ogijima

1.About Ogijima

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`)

This island is a small island of circumference about 4.7km.

There are many slopes and small alleys. (Therefore I don’t recommend the rent-a-bicycle.)

There is a Shinto shrine in the top of this island.

Toyotama Hime Shrine is God of the easy delivery. (○´艸`)

The scenery which the Shinto shrine overlooks is a quite good superb view. d(*゚ー゚*)

2.Cats of Ogijima

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.

Meow!! (ΦωΦ)

Meow!! (ΦωΦ)

Meo—w!! (ΦωΦ)

It is hot today・・・.(ฅ`ω´ฅ)

3.The art work of Ogijima

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.
