​Onigashima Cave

Inside, the Oni's large hall, living room, and Oni Keeper's waiting room are recreated. The inside of the cave is cool even in summer, giving it a mysterious atmosphere.

As the ferry approaches Megi Port, you will see about 300 seagulls lined up on the breakwater. Like real seagulls, this object changes direction all at once when the wind blows. In other words, it is a work that visualizes the flow of the wind and the habits of a flock of seagulls. Seagulls line the breakwaters. Also, at the last art festival, a new seawall whose design was supervised by Kimura was introduced.
