Charlie and Jem in the oval at Benesse House in Japan.
Hidden beneath layers of green at the top of a hill. To reach here takes a long train journey (overnight from Tokyo to Takamatsu), followed by a ferry to Naoshima island on the inland sea. A creaky funicular carries you up the hill to the oval.
A truly magical place.
