Honmura Art Village, a district home to around ten art installations scattered across former residences, is one of the first pit stops for visitors to Naoshima. But that’s not the only thing this quaint neighbourhood is worth making a beeline for. Tucked away from quiet streets are several hidden cafes and eateries where you can grab a bite (or a breather) between art hopping.
It was by pure chance that I stumbled across Apron Cafe while searching for my second last stop on the Honmura art village trail. A neatly written sign on a blackboard indicated its existence around the corner from a nondescript single level building.
