This is a wonderful place to visit if you love Japanese maples,mosses and pines, also you can enjoy a tea ceremony while looking out to the gardens,It also has small waterfalls, Looking up at the hills you see the volcanic steam from the mountains.

紅葉の時期になったので訪問してみました。現在は紅葉がすすんでいる時期でしばらくは楽しめそうです。 It was time for autumn leaves so I tried visiting. It seems that it will be fun for a while at the time when autumn leaves are currently in progress. 平日にもかかわらず入場券の購入は5分程度並びました。また、駐車場は美術館前の駐車場は満車でしたが臨時駐車場は十分空きがあり待たずに入る事が出来ました。 Despite weekdays I purchased admission tickets for about 5 minutes. Also, although the...More

It was a horrible, rainy day so we put off doing the round course and looked for indoor attractions. Am I glad we decided to venture into the garden during a slow down in the rain. The moss gardens had a magical light that was...More

I agree with many of the previous reviews that the pottery collection is average (the displays are a bit dated) but that it is worth the visit for the moss gardens.

This is not a large museum, having 5 rooms of historical pottery from across time and countries. There are some gems here - the Jamon period pots, particularly. It won't take long to tour the building but the garden is worth a visit too. Moss...More

The Hakone museum of art is easily accessed from the second stop at Koen-Kami on the Cable Car. In mid winter parts of the garden were closed off and the tea house was shut. Even so they alone were worth the moderate entrance fee. They...More

This was my second visit to the Museum. I'll admit I went for the small but spectacular garden and not the art. The landscaping and views from the garden are spectacular. There's a tea house where you can buy green tea but it's the pathways,...More

Small museum with steep admission price that was clearly not worth the money (even in pricey Hakone) but the place was crowded clearly not because of the museum but because of the adjoining museum garden, which offered spectacular views in November. No match for Kyoto...More
