Minimalist Escape: MUJI Opens Airbnb on Japan’s Art Island, Teshima

A MUJI concept breathed into life.

Craving a unique getaway that involves nature, art, and minimalist design? MUJI, a renowned Japanese lifestyle brand, just unveiled an Airbnb on Teshima, a captivating art island in the Kagawa Prefecture.

But wait — this isn’t your ordinary vacation rental. The Airbnb is actually a 90-year-old folk house, once served as an art installation space. As of writing, MUJI has transformed this beautiful home into a modern seaside retreat, which embodies the brand’s signature minimalist aesthetic. Think white walls, earth tones, upcycled wood furniture, and calming Japanese accents like ceramics and linen wall hangings.
