This garden was soo pretty ! The colors of the park are gorgeous and it is very clean. Trees, rocks, little rivers and grass everywhere. Recommended for pictures !

Just a perfect way to spend both in nature and viewing exquisite art work. Impressionists, and other fabulous art work.

We got here using our Hakone Free Passes with some help from a friendly bus driver. It’s an interesting collection and we thought it worth the detour. We also had an excellent lunch ordering some set menus.

There cannot be many art museums that you can see Monet, Renoir, Cezanne etc paintings next to each other and get so close you can see the paint strokes. Truly amazing. A little pricey however worth the visit.
