Setouchi Triennale 2022

¥3,800 – ¥4,800

Held once every three years, the Setouchi Trienalle is a world-famous contemporary Art Festival held on the islands of the Seto Inland Sea. The event was launched in 2010 to revitalise the struggling communities who have fallen victim to the depopulation issues of Japan’s rural areas. The islands have a unique laid back atmosphere and stunning scenery to go with the variety of art exhibitions and installations.

The theme for 2019 is ‘Journey through the Seasons’ and it will last a total of 107 days, divided into three parts. Spring Encounters runs from April 26th – May 26th, Summer Gatherings from July 19th – August 25th and Fall Expansions from September 28th – November 4th.

Tickets for the event can be purchased for all three seasons (4,800 yen or 3,800 in advance) or single seasons (4,000 yen). Guests under 15 enter free and there are discounts available for those between 15-18. There are some pieces with additional entry fees and the ticket does not cover entry to the Chichu Art Museum or the Teshima Art Museum.

Package tours are also available.
