“Worth a look”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

The location and archtecure was stunning and is a work of art itself. there was an interesting selection of french impressionist work and japaneese artists working at the same time. Excellent museum shop too. Lockers for puting your bags and coats into means you can walk around unfettered.

“Great art collection. Expensive restaurant and cafe.”
Reviewed 7 October 2012 via mobile

Beautiful building and landscape. Many art collections including my favorite Monet. Both restaurant and cafe are pricy. You can easily enjoy full day including hiking trail behind the museum.

“Nice private collection”
Reviewed 23 August 2012

This was a nice surprise in Hakone. The museum is a beautiful building. Although the art collection is not so big, it is a compact size and nice collection. We were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed our visit very much.

“Foujita Collection”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

This museum has good collection of Foujita.
If the weather is nice, it is good to drink outside of the museum cafe.
There are hot springs around, so it is good to go after the museum to enjoy Hakone.
Sengokuhara has white coloured hot spring and many hotel's onsen are open for public before 3 pm.
