Don't miss the opportunity to walk around in this beautiful garden with outdoor pieces of art placed in the garden. The Picassomuseum is indoors and must be seen. Pictures and ceramics.

It’s not a big museum, just two floors filled with a very nice selection of porcelain and ceramic work. And similar to other Japanese museums, the exhibitions are very minimal, clean and quiet. There are some really nice works dating several thousand years ago in...More

The touristy Hakone area of Japan includes a series of railway hill stations beginning at Hankone-Yumoto and ending at Gora (pronounced “Go-la.” Japanese does not have the “r” sound). At the end of the line, and in between, are famous hot springs, shrines, galleries, hikes,...More

Depending on time of year and interest, the pottery or the garden are worth visits in their own right. We were lucky - saw fabulous autumn colour in the lovely gardens. Luckily most visitors don't stay long. Next to the cog railway station or possible...More
