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.
