We arrived in Naoshima via the ferry, arriving at the port terminal designed by SANAA. It was a lovely lightweight structure all in white, the appearance antithetical to its almost industrial-like function. Viewed from a distance, a corrugated roof structure seemingly floats. Upon approach, one realises a grid of steel poles as the support system, but these too, almost shimmer and disappear amongst mirrored walls which have been set up to reflect surroundings. A tourist information centre and souvenir shop is set up in the middle, encased by glass. Passengers could also wait in the cafe, though in the cool spring weather, we were much happier wandering outside!
