4,629 reviews
Navigating Japan’s public transport system can often be a daunting task. Let a guide do the work for you on this tour of Mt. Fuji and Lake Ashi by coach and bullet train, which saves you hours in travel time. Ascend to the Mt. Fuji’s 5th Station; ride on the Komagatake Ropeway, one of Japan’s highest aerial tramways; and take a cruise on Lake Ashi, part of Hakone National Park.

The museum gave me a deeper knowledge about the life of the author of The Little Prince. It also tackled loads of historical connection to the book. I just wish the movie about little prince and Saint-Exupery has some English subtitle for international guests to appreciate it too.

Interesting small museum close to Hakone Highland hotel. Should be visited if you with kids in this area to introduce this famous book and get taste of French townscape and garden.

Even if you are a fan of The Little Prince, I would still say the museum seems overpriced. The gardens are very pretty, but small. You can walk around the property and see re-created buildings and store fronts that are mostly facades except for actual souvenir shops. I couldn't find any re-creation of the snake that swallowed an elephant, although it is featured in their brochure. I even asked for help, but there isn't much help in English from the attendants, the signage, or the English language brochure. If you don't mind the expense, though, and you have the time, it is a pleasant enough stop for about 30 to 60 minutes, even accounting for a LOT of picture-taking, and you can then continue to the Venetian Glass Museum which has more to see. The bus to that area left our hotel around 9am and the last bus back was around 2:30pm, so after travel time we only had about 3 hours to see both museums. In hindsight, we could have skipped The Little Prince and spent more time in the Venetian Glass Museum.

I found this “museum” extremely overpriced for the poor content you get. In addition, all labels in the exhibition part are only in Japanese. Same for the movie. Completely not suited for foreigners.

It’s a small museum however while some reviews have complained it is not well maintained and faded it is impact a very charming little place. The grounds and old european influenced structures really bring back childhood delight. The place is small enough to complete under an hour and yes the admission is 1600yen which is pricey compared to open air museum and pola museum where more to see and do. I was happy with the gift shop as being a fan of Le Petit Prince I could find many unusual souvenirs.
