The collection at this private museum outside of Hakone is a marvel. Each successive room filled with beautiful screens, exquisite pottery and vases, sculpture, bowls and textiles is unsurpassed. We could have spent more time there because of the many well curated treasures here.

The museum has an extensive collection of ceramics, painting, lacquerware, and bronzes. I easily spent 2 hours in the well displayed exhibit rooms. Highly recommend for anyone with a serious interest in Japanese and Asian art. The museum is near a Hakone Tozan Bus H stop for those with the Hakone FreePass.

Wonderful collection of Japanese and Chinese art, including ceramics. Recently opened and beautifully presented. Don't miss the hot spring footbath on leaving.

Mr. Okada may have made his fortune in gambling and casinos, and he may not be the most popular fellow on the walls of the FBI or Interpol, but the man had a vision for the collection of Asian sculpture, pottery, screens, scrolls and all sorts of other pieces of art. The pieces date back to before the Common Era and the quality of them is breath-taking. Add to all that, the building give evidence of no expense having been spared. It is a stunning architectural masterpiece, with the best and latest of museum/gallery design. Not cheap to visit but well worth it.

The art collection is special if you like ceramics and ancient japonese painting. If you get a rainy day this could be a good option. The museum is brand New and the building very modern but still no restaurant is available. In that bus stop there is nothing around (probably with the afluence it will develop fast).

¥2800 for a museum open for two years? Pretentiously overpriced. Compare other private art museums: Pola Art Museum, Hakone ¥1800 (¥1600 seniors); MOA Museum of Art, Atami ¥1600 (¥11200 seniors); Musée Tomo, Tokyo ¥1000; Idemitsu Museum, Tokyo ¥1000. And the huge Tokyo National Museum ¥620 (free over 70 years)

*
* Pola Museum of Art, ¥1800 (¥1600 seniors)
* Louvre , Paris €15 = ¥2,048
* Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York $25 ($17 seniors) = ¥3005 (¥2043)

Okada Museum has a huge porcelain collection that can take up a whole morning or afternoon. I am not very knowledgeable in the field, but I could enjoy the exhibition. However, it was a bit too much in terms of volume to me, and I skipped a bit of it so I could save my energy to enjoy paintings upstairs. It would be great if the museum allows the visitors to come back to continue the vast collection within a couple of days or something, because it is really a lot to take in in one afternoon (or a morning) and spending all day would be really exhausting...
The admission fee costed us 2800 yen per person which is a bit too much to be honest, but maybe because of that, the viewing experience was nice and quiet, didn't have to be annoyed with a lot of heads between you and the exhibition.

The collection is breath-taking, so many beautiful objects, and stunningly well presented. The building is brand new, the layout of the galleries and the route you take through them is subtle and perfect. If you remotely interested in asian art or indeed museum design do not miss this if you are in the area.

Make sure you get a drink with your feet in the hot spring water before you go.

The Okada Museum of Art is very new in Hakone Kowakudani and opened only about a month ago (Autumn, 2013). It featured a collection of beautiful ceramics, scrolls, paintings, etc from Japan, China, and Korea by Kazuo Okada. Even if you are not a collector you will be impressed by the displays arranged artfully on 5 floors. Then you can rest your legs in a long foot bath outside of the museum. This is a very nice addition to all of the many museums one can visit in Hakone.We recommend it highly. No cameras allowed as with most museums.

This museum was one of the biggest surprises of our Japan holiday. Seldom have I seen such a beautifully laid out museum which such a wealth of national treasures. There are screens in front of the most important pieces on show with detailed information, in Japanese and in English. We could have spent hours here. The place is not to be missed, an absolute MUST.
