“Naoshima Kids Port” opened in June 2020, aiming that raising children in Naoshima to be even more delightful and fulfilling and that eventually more families with children to reside in the Naoshima island. We are mainly for babies, toddlers, children at the elementary school, and their parents, and have spaces for local networking of families and handicraft which makes the most of the island’s characteristics. Books and tables for learning are also available. Every month, we have special days - for paint, play-dough, and etc. as well as projects for learning.
Meeting with people from around the world is always inspiring, so please feel free to drop in at any time!
~Towards the future of each of us~
Our thoughts in the name of Kids Port:
“Let all of us start a journey to the world from here being a starting point - a port.”
“We want Naoshima to be a place where various things mingle and gives us an opportunity to perceive them.”
“We want to respect diverse life-style of families through discovery and experience.”
“We want to be a place like home where parents and children can come back any time.”
