Art Village, a vibrant hub nestled along the Shikoku Pilgrimage route, breathes new life into a former hospital that lay abandoned for three decades. Now revitalized, it stands as a beacon of creativity and hospitality. From woodworking and leather crafting to tarot reading, alongside a bagel shop, bakery, beauty salon, and vintage clothing store, the village is a mosaic of artisanal and culinary delights. Plans are afoot to enrich this eclectic mix with a coffee roastery and a jazz café by the year’s end, further enhancing its appeal as a cultural and leisure destination.

The lodging facilities at Art Village cater to travelers seeking a unique accommodation experience. It offers spacious rooms of at least 8 tatami mats, equipped with toilets, washbasins, kitchens, and large baths, ensuring a comfortable and relaxing stay. The inclusion of a terrace allows guests to enjoy outdoor activities like barbecuing, making it an ideal spot for those looking to unwind. Situated on the Shikoku Pilgrimage route, it serves as a perfect retreat to soothe weariness. Additionally, guests have the convenience of using the kitchen freely, which is stocked with a rice cooker, microwave, toaster, fridge, coffee maker, and various kitchenware. A neighboring 8-tatami room is available as a shared space, complete with WiFi, ensuring connectivity throughout their stay.
