Shima Kitchen in Progress

- Teshima island, Kagawa, Japan

Shima Kitchen was built in 2010 for Setouchi International Art Festival.
Since then it was updated with small improvement works almost every year, and done structural renewal work with new roof material in 2019 for longer term maintenance.
We took new photos to cerebrate and record the 10th year of this project in 2020.
Thank you for visiting and supporting this project from all over the world.
