Not a very big museum but if you pay close attention to the decoration/buildings, you will certainly be very fascinating! The front yard is particularly lovely with all the hydrangea planted. Check out The Little Prince exhibition, it describes the author's life.

As a fan, I find the museum very well arranged and decorated in accordance with the book. The rose garden is well maintained. The cafe offers delicious cakes and coffee. The gift shop is not tax free but I’m willing to pay because the goods...More

The Little Prince Museum exhibition hall is hidden inside the fake French shops, and judging by some reviews it looks like some visitors missed entering the exhibition hall. The exhibition describes Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's life and The Little Prince story, but the exhibition panels are...More

We visited Hakone expecting hot springs, good food, and beautiful nature, we never expected to find a museum dedicated to the Little Prince! The museum is quite large, with indoor & outdoor attractions, including a museum of the author, outdoor shows, restaurant, cafes, and a...More

We couldn't really work out why this museum was here, sort of in the middle of nowhere. But, hey, it was great! It's easy to get to/from via the local Hakone bus system - we got the bus from Gora. The quality of the exhibits...More

Really cute museum in the middle of absolutely nowhere/in the mountains! The museum is extremely well done in terms of presentation and has beautiful surroundings, but it is all in Japanese so you need to get an English guide to follow the exhibition. We went...More
