About this sight

Beginning its service on April 9th, 2016, this tourist train connects Okayama Station and Uno Port from which a ferry will take travelers to Naoshima Island. The train provides a selection of art books, which passengers may browse through to pass the time. Snacks and drinks are available for purchase as well. "La Malle de Bois" roughly translates to 'wooden travelling trunk' in French. The train provides visitors with an easy access to the different art sites of the Setouchi Art Festival, a contemporary art festival held every three years on various islands in the Seto Inland Sea.
