Oiso Sunday Art Walk

Having previously prospered as a region of vacation homes, Oiso is also called the “living room of Shonan.” Tucked between mountains and the ocean, it still has the traces of a vacation region. Would you like to explore the galleries and shops of Oiso where time slows down? They are open on the 3rd Sunday of every month along with the Oiso Market.
