Benesse Art Site Naoshima Web Tickets

This ticket sales system enables visitors to purchase entrance tickets in advance for periods during which high affluence is anticipated. By making it possible to select the desired visiting time during peak-season, it enables visitors to plan their itinerary around the site more conveniently.

 * You may still be admitted even if you do not have tickets purchased in advance. There are tickets sold on the day. Nevertheless, if it is crowded and you do not have a reserved ticket, you will be issued a “waiting number”, and it may take some time before your number is called and you are admitted. Once the entire quota of “waiting numbers” has been distributed, guests without them cannot be admitted anymore on that day.

■ Note regarding discounted admission for Setouchi Triennale Passport holders
Due to system constraints, it is currently not possible to apply the discounted price for Setouchi Triennale Passport holders to advance tickets purchases.
Please buy your advance ticket at the full price and present the credit card used for purchasing it together with your Setouchi Triennale Passport at the time of admission to the respective museums to receive a refund of the corresponding discount amount.
Passport holders may also buy discounted tickets directly at the respective museums, but due to the anticipated high affluence, we recommend advance ticket purchase.
