Quaint little park

We were keen to maximize our onsen stay so this was the only place we visited within walking distance of our onsen. It was a nice walk at sunset

Beautiful as well as relaxing, you can stroll through the gardens at your leisure. My five grand children found the park interesting and enjoyed the time spent at the park.

It was touted as a French inspired garden, beautiful in all seasons. But when we got there, the shrubbery was scagly, the fountain was undergoing repair and some footpaths were under maintenance. Maybe it is a repair phase and hopefully the park will look much better real soon. The crafthouse is worth a visit though. You can try your hand... More

Recommended to see it in all its flaming glory during autumn. Other than a beautifully-manicured garden, artistically structured landscaping with fountains and the mountains as a backdrop, there are cake and coffee as well as souvenir, art and craft outlets for an all-rounded experience. The rose garden is magnificent with humongous specimens and in colors only limited to the imagination.... More

It can be a pleasant place to walk around if you happen to be in the area, but there is nothing exceptional about it.

Easily accessible via public transportation -part of your Hakone Freepass- entrance fee is waived (FREE). Lovely landscapes, including multiple tiered stone pathways, tea houses, greenhouses, fountains, etc. end your visit at the Crafthouse, where you can purchase crafts such as jewelry, etched glassware, pottery, etc. or make your own! Highly recommend for an off day, in other words a day... More

It's quite a steep walk from the station without knowing it :) nevertheless we make our way there! once you finally reach the fountain area it was worth the steep walk :) We have coffee & cake in the café overseeing the fountain. How nice if this café could be smoke free as would be lovely to sit outdoor area... More

You may either walk to this park from Gora station, or take the cable car and get down at Koen Shimo station ( one station away from Gora station ). The park was much bigger than expected.. Just when you thought you have cover all the spots, there is another path leading to new location. Be sure to stop by... More

Overpriced (unless you have the Hakone "Free" Pass), unfriendly and unhelpful staff. Avoid if possible (go to the Hakone Open Air Museum instead to keep your young kids entertained).

Easily accessibly by cable car. Exit station, veer left and you'll see the ticket booth in approximately 50 meters. It costs ¥500 per adult. It's a rather compact park with cafes, a glass house selling seedlings, a Craft House which conducts pottery and glass blasting (etching) demonstrations, souvenir shop and a stunning fountain.
