This is a wonderful museum, with great art work and a very interesting building. Any art lover who visits Hakone should put this on their list.

We spent around one and half hours here on a cold afternoon just before closing time so there weren't many other people. The museum is easily accessible by the Hakone bus network. It was interesting to wander around and view the art works and also read a little about Suzuki Tsuneshi - the collector.

I am no art buff but this modern and light museum / gallery proved a welcome attraction on a wet day in Hakone. Catch the train to Gora and then the bus from stop number 2 just outside the station. Mixture of European and Japanese art, with ceramic and glass. Coffee shop served limited sandwiches and cakes.

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.

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.
