瀬戸内国際芸術祭2022、やってます。Setouchi Triennale 2022 opened!

地元情報 Local Info.


The Setouchi Triennale 2022 opened on April 14, 2022.




It started in 2010 and is held once every three years, and this is the fifth time. Wakabaya opened in 2014, so this is the third Setouchi Triennale for us following 2016 and 2019.

It was the extremely busy days during the Triennale in 2016 and 2019 for us, when the number of visitors to Japan was increasing sharply. We used to scatter the official guidebook, maps, timetables, etc. on the large table in our living room, and hold trip planning talks in Japanese, English, Chinese, and French until late.

Now, it is held with COVID-19. We have no bookings from overseas but a few from Japanese tourists. I rushed around Takamatsu by bike to get the official guidebook and poster for our guests looking forward to the fascinating art festival.


I received the poster of the Triennale at Kagawa Tourism Association in the prefectural office building, a Japanese representative modernism architecture by Kenzo TANGÉ.



I bought the official guidebook at the Triennale information center because it was not on sale yet at Amazon and bookstores even after the opening of the Triennale.

The impressive poster is necessary in the guest house to excite our guests and I read the guidebook now.
