#3 of 21 in Parks in Hakone-machi
Take a stroll through the Western-style landscaped garden at Gora Park, sitting on a steep hill at the back of the station. Breathe in the park's fresh, clean air, and admire the seasonal displays of flowers and trees across the differently themed areas, including extensive rosebeds and a tropical botanical garden. Stop at the onsite teahouse for a spot of refreshment, or have a more substantial break in the restaurant overlooking the main fountain. Head to the craft center to try out a range of activities, such as glass etching, pottery, flower arranging, and glass-blowing.

  • There is nothing worth looking at, from the east to the West Gate 10 minutes has gone to complete the park, the whole park in the afternoon up to 10 to 20 people in the inside, just look at some flowers and grass, not many species, if in the station and other cars have 20 minutes, you can go around, do not need to go specially

  • We stopped here after the Hakone Museum of Art and were very glad we did. We had delicious sandwiches in the cafe by the western style fountains, and enjoyed the flowers in the conservatories. The out...  more »
  • I stopped by during their trip to Hakone. There is metered parking around the car but did not. Hot, beautiful flowers in February and say that no flowers this time of year especially, it seemed, but as sales in the House are on display. However, having a history of over 100 years, this park is very beautiful equipped garden itself. Views of rolling up, seen from near the Summit parks throughout is good. Craft, can also craft experience. Is useless in a building in the Park dog also put together and could walk. Best season is May-11-as, also wanted to return at that time thought.

  • We visited this place on a rainy day with our Hakone Day pass. Entry is free if you have the day pass with you. With all the clouds around us, the park had looked very mysterious and beautiful, hiding its secrets and intriguing us enough to explore it. As we walked through the clouds it was interesting to spot the differences between the Zen gardens we had been seeing on our trip and the French Garden in front of us. Gora Park has a beautiful craft shop and two restaurants for you to relax and enjoy the surroundings. The Craft House has a huge collection of beads strings and other materials to make bracelets, necklace etc and it is fun for adults too. Isshikidousarou the sandwich restaurant served us the most amazing sandwiches I've ever had. With its classy ambience, I would not be surprised if they ever played Jazz live with a full house. Even the beverages are crisp and very refreshing. Sandwich in your hand and the view of the park through large windows is just out of this world. The other restaurant is more traditional and is a great option if you want a heavier meal. It is right next to the main fountain in the middle of the park. It is a great stop with children and I would recommend it for all weathers. Cheers to many more adventures
  • Western style park but they have a small Japanese teahouse inside. For fall colours, next door garden at museum of art is better.
  • Great park as partly rosarium, partly japanese garden with big fontain. Refreshment. Workshop hall and shop. Autumn is stunning here and nearby surroundings.
  • Serene and well kept but small in size. Staff at the park were extremely friendly. Known for their craft house where art classes take place. We spent approximately 45 mins at the park.
  • Pretty good flower garden park. The fountain at the center of this park is especially beautiful. Although this is a park, there is no space for playing baseball or that kind of stuff. Just enjoy its calm atmosphere!
