Art blends with nature at this huge outdoor sculpture park, where works by both Japanese and Western artists are framed by trees, grass and mountains.

Beautiful sculptures set out in scenic, tranquil, undulating surroundings. It is akin to a walk in a country park, but with famous artworks thrown in. There is a tower you can climb up to the top of for a grand view, a pond with carp...More

I was expecting to be in and out of here in 10 minutes. It is quite pricey to get in (1600 yen each?) and you have to leave bags in a locker. The outdoor setting helps massively - with scenery like this the installations get...More

Wow, the most amazing set of sculptures and art in the most beautiful surroundings. Moore, Miroslaw, Picasso and others in the Japanese countryside. Well worth the visit.

I could look at paintings all day but am not a fan of sculpture. I walked through the gates here and was impressed immediately. It is beautifully designed, with the clever, witty or just stunning pieces fitted with care and consideration into the landscape. Not...More

This should be a must visit. It is accessible by bus or train and to do it properly you should allow 2 to 3 hours. The sculptures are magnificent and varied in textures and artists. Seeing so many beautiful sculptures in such a magnificent setting...More

Stunning surroundings and great exhibits. Accessible by ropeway followed by cable car and then brief train ride. Spend about an hour and a half to two hours here. Definite must do when in Hakone.
