Experience the splendor of Setouchi at Roka, an all-suite Japanese-style inn with open-air baths

SETOUCHI Tourism Authority


A small island of the Seto Inland Sea, Naoshima is home to numerous art museums, outdoor sculptures, and architecture and is one of the sites of the world-famous Setouchi Triennale art festival. Although emerging as a popular travel destination, this charming island still retains a tranquil, laid-back atmosphere and welcomes visitors with stunning natural sceneries.

Newly opened in Naoshima in April 2022, Roka is the first full-fledged ryokan on the island with all-suite rooms equipped with open-air baths. Inspired by the concept of “an inn where you can enjoy contemporary art while relaxing amidst natural scenery,” this Japanese-style inn is itself an art project and an exciting destination in its own right.



Each of the eleven rooms is one of three types of suites, though there is only one “Roka Suite” for those looking for something special. The accommodation makes use of natural materials from the Seto Inland Sea area, such as wood, stone, and soil, offering the warmth of nature and the kind of serenity you can only find in Naoshima. The large windows connected to the suite’s private open-air bath provide views of the island’s natural landscape.



Dining at Roka is a superb culinary experience any time of year. The inn’s restaurant serves dishes of seasonal fish and local vegetables from Setouchi, as well as memorable kaiseki-style sushi and vegan options.
