poster for Hakone Open Air Museum

Not far from Mt. Fuji, Hakone immerses the visitor in the splendor of nature, glorious in any season. Making the most of the natural beauty of its surroundings, The Hakone Open-Air Museum was founded in 1969, becoming Japan’s first outdoor, open-air museum of art. Located in a lushly green 70,000 square meters garden with a view of the Hakone mountains, the museum has on permanent display some 120 masterpieces by famous modern and contemporary sculptors. This is a unique opportunity to enjoy a leisurely stroll, taking the time to examine your favorite sculptures up close and experience firsthand what each work of art has to say. Visit the museum’s five indoor exhibitions, including the Picasso Pavilion with its rotational displays from the more than 300 Picasso pieces in this world-class collection, as well as the natural hot spring bath and the art in the outdoor plazas. Take the time to nurture your soul in the artistic and natural beauty of The Hakone Open-Air Museum.
