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 grounds. Several different buildings in addition to the vast outdoor sculpture garden. Picasso exhibit is worth a visit just in its own. Take advantage of the free foot bath. Only negative is that the snacks are quite pricey, not surprising for a museum but...More

We were a little bit reluctant to sacrifice time on a busy day to visit this museum, but it was absolutely worth every minute. The layout of pieces is gorgeous, and the Picasso museum is one of the most interesting we have seen anywhere. The...More

This is a gem. Without any expectations I was surprised about the museum. Very nice and at the time of our visit (Friday at 3pm) not crowded at all. Some very fine sculptures - also not your typical dull ones. go and see!

Make sure you stop off to view the Hakone Open-Air Museum, an easy 2 minute walk from Chokoku-no-mori station, just before Gora. Art installations, famous works of art, statues, water features and foot bath, places for children, and amazing natural beauty. Great value and save...More

Although we never saw Mt. Fuji... he was feeling shy that day... we got to visit the fabulous Hakone Open-Air Museum. This is one that the kids would enjoy as there are many outdoor sculptures and they can be as noisy as they want. The...More

I loved, loved, loved the Hakone Open-Air Museum. Easily accessible by the train (a train with awesome views by the way) - this museum is a must see if you're going to visit Hakone. Admission is 1,600 yen for adults and it's worth it. I...More
