Benesse House Museum Café
Immerse Yourself in an Artistic Mood while Looking Out Over the Beautiful Seto Inland Sea at This Café
This café is located on the 2nd floor of the Benesse House Museum, a combination museum and hotel. Natural light shines through the wide open windows on the south and west sides, so you can relax and enjoy a light meal or a drink while looking out over the Seto Inland Sea.
On top of coffee and tea, the café serves drinks made with lemons from Setouchi as well as alcoholic drinks. Furthermore, they also serve food, including sweets, curry, and pasta.
There are also pieces of art exhibited on the terrace, so you can enjoy the extraordinary mood in a luxurious space created by the combination of nature and art. We recommend taking in the refreshing breeze on the terrace when the weather is good.
There is also a shop that offers visitors art items that make perfect souvenirs, including books about the Benesse House Museum.
A great location where you can see the Seto Inland Sea and the surrounding islands.
Enjoy the scenery changing with the time and seasons – the area’s view at dusk is breathtaking.
Enjoy not only drinks, but meals like curry and pasta too.
The shop is perfect for selecting souvenirs.
