Apparently Hakone is a special type of Japanese garden. This garden is supposed to be the oldes Japanese garden in the Western World. The garden is very beautiful and serene. Some of the short trails and stairs are quite steep and one must be in good shape the climb then. The vegetation and trees are very beautiful. There is a great looking koi pond and an artificial water fall. The bamboo garden was beautiful. You can also see a few California redwood trees. We enjoyed the garden very much. We did not see many flowering plants. The entrance fee for adults is $8. Seniors pay $6. I highly recommend visiting this garden.
