I recommend to visit Hakone Shissei Kaen if you love flowers and plants. The garden provides brochures 3 times/months (ca. 20 JPY, only in Japanese) and it tells season's flowers and plants. The garden helds occationally exibitions about poppies, cherry blossoms, an insectivorous plants and maples.

Various plants and flowers especially from the local marshes, rivers and mountains are planted and well taken care of. Really nice walking through the forests and paths by seeing those. It took us about 1.5 hours to see everything.

Nice museum and nice port town on the other side of Hakone lake Asshi. Try the roasted corn and squid just outside the dock.
