The best part of the park was all the way in the back of the trails, where you get some great views of the plains leading up to the small mountains behind the garden. Great, contained area for kids to explore.

We visited this Shisseikaen in October and in April. In October you see just a few sorts but Autumn leaves in red and orange, in April you see more colours and Lysichiton camtschatcensis.

My husband is really into nature. and so we enjoyed coming here. The garden is a very pleasant place to stroll. There are lots of pretty flowers including the blue poppy, and there are marshes, meadows, forests, ponds and streams. It has a nice walking path to follow.

I would strongly recommend the Hakone Botanical Garden of Wetlands (also called Hakone Shisseikaen) to people who are in Hakone area and like/love plants. The gardens itself is not that big I think that 1.5h is enough to walk slowly through the whole place. The landscaping which fused very naturally to the surroundings and the plant collections is just breathtaking.... More

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.
