I would surely recommend visiting this museum as it has awesome views of the mountains, gorgeous lawns, great sculptures and the best of it all is the hot water spring foot bath which i guess has healing qualities..would love to visit again. Absolutely recommended.

A good location for a break after a long drive from Tokyo. Entry is about 5000 yen for 2 adults and 1 child. Lots of art exhibit and beautiful sceneries. There's also a foot spa location to soak your feet for free.

Definitely a must see if youre in the area, we were blow away. Not really expecting much we were shocked to see this sprawling, manicured beautiful walking park nestled in the mountains, bearing jaw-droppingly beautiful sculptures and giant art pieces at every turn. Seemingly endless...More

most of the pieces were a little too modern for my taste but some of them were in the outstanding category (and i am a frequent visitor to art museums etc.) definitely worth a visit

Well worth a side trip from Tokyo or Kyoto to visit this unique museum. It contains famous scultures by Thomas Moore and Rodin as well as Japanes sculptures, and has a two story building dedicated to Picasso.

Located in the much visited Hakone forestry area south west of Tokyo. Includes a small but impressive PIcasso museum.

We are traveling from Tokyo and plan to stay for one night in Hakone. We will have luggage with us and will not be able to check in to our hotel until 3pm. I noticed that there are lockers. Are they big enough for rolling luggage? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I don't remember lockers but the ladies at the desk were very helpful and I'm sure they'd watch your bags for you.

Roughly how long do you think it takes to explore the museum? I am thinking about 2PM - 5PM time slot. What do you guys think? Sun sets early in January
