Shodoshima is the he largest island participating in Setouchi Triennale and the second largest island in the Seto Inland Sea. Traditionally known for its soy and olive plantations, Shodoshima has a distinctly Mediterranean atmosphere including some splendid beaches and coastline. Shodoshima hosts many festival installations and venues with most located on the southern coast and in port towns.
Shodoshima offers plenty in terms of accommodation. Hotels and guesthouses are mostly located along the island’s southern coast, ranging from basic guesthouses to large hotels. Prices vary greatly with the summer months of July to September and especially August being peak season – at which time accommodation can be expensive. Quite large in size and offering plenty to see and do, Shodoshima is best-explored by renting a car and driving yourself.
