In winter the park is covered in a blanket of snow so I can only imagine how lovely it would be when the flowers are blooming in spring or summer. There is a nice view of the mountains in the background and the park in the foreground near the top of the multi tiered park. Lots of eateries along the... More

Gora Park is a stone throw away from Gora Station where most visitors make transit from train to tram or vice visa to Togendai. It is worth a visit as the garden is very well maintain. There are a little art and craft house, a couple of good café/restaurants for short breaks. Of course the centre piece of Gora Park... More

Such a pretty park. Inside is the Crafthouse which is worth a visit. You can make crafts or buy them. There are lots of beautiful plants and a fountain. Features a nice coffee shop. The tracks are not all smooth and it is on a steep hill making it unsuitable for some.

Nice scenery but a small park. I like the flowers and the botanic garden there. Although small but worth to visit. You need to go up the slope at Gora station around 5 min walk. I recommend to go as there are some shops and restaurants that you can go for your lunch there. We went to Hakone very early... More

It turns out that Japan has another great treasure in addition to the cherry blossoms in the spring, the arrival of hydrangeas blooming in June. We never that that there were so many different varieties of hydrangeas. They are outstanding. This park has greenhouses with various other unique flowers as well. The highlight of the outside is a sizable rose... More

It's well designed park with lots of different species of plants. But, it's a bit pricey with ¥500 entrance fee. If you have time, it's worth to visit the tea house inside the park for morning / afternoon tea. Easy access with the Tozan "S line" Sightseeing bus stop right in front of the park.

We visited this park in the rain during April (cherry blossom time). Even with the rain we found it very interesting and would love to return in late May or June when more of the garden is in bloom

Azaleas are everywhere; they're very colorful! The garden sets nicely. There's a pool in the middle of the garden; perhaps this is the highlight of this garden.
