Art blends with nature at this huge outdoor sculpture park, where works by both Japanese and Western artists are framed by trees, grass and mountains.

Definitely worth a visit ! They have a student fare and you can get a discount with the Hakone Freepass. Such a nice area to walk around and the Picasso exhibit is very interesting!

This is an outstanding sculpture park that will dazzle you. Certainly a 2 hour visit is recommended. There is a cafe in the centre of the grounds which we did not use but was busy.

Surprisingly extensive collection of sculpture. Lots of Henry Moore. Picasso exhibit is really cool - lots of ceramics and other media. Cool kinetic sculpture as well.

I don't know how to begin to describe this place. This place is a dream. Even if its raining, this place is worth a visit because the mood is different at different times, thus how you see it, also changes.

Enjoyed the art itself and especially the outdoor setting. We are not art snobs but experienced a relaxing and fun time walking throughout when the cable car was closed and some slight rain. It was not too crowded as were here after school started.
