■About the Koebi dormitory:
We provide the Dorm for people who come from distant places and countries to support the Setouchi International Art Festival’s artwork making and management. We welcome people who can stay for long periods of time!
The Dorm is a facility where Koebitai members who are doing volunteer activities can stay for free, in order to ensure that they can carry out their activities during the Setouchi International Art Festival 2019 smoothly. Since in the Dorm you will have to share the space with other Koebitai members, please read the following application guidelines carefully.
There are no individual rooms, only a large common space with Japanese-style bedding (futon) side by side. There are no showers or baths n the dormitory, so you will have to use the nearby Japanese style (shared) public bath. If you prefer a place with individual rooms and private shower, we suggest you find a hotel or guesthouse in Takamatsu city.
