  • Lovely park, nice way to spend a few hours in Gora. Lovely gardens and flowers and scenery. We stopped for some ice cream and sat by the fountain to enjoy.
  • This is definitely a MUST visit! Dont miss Gora park, especially in spring and Hakone museum of art has a magnificent moss park..
  • Very cute and quaint little park, hard to walk in the summer heat and the cafes are a bit overpriced, but very nice and relaxing
  • Beautiful hydrangea in the park💐💐, good time to visit the Ajisai exhibition in June!
  • We loved the park, but even more enjoyable was the pottery making and the glass-blowing. Wonderful family experience, and the delivery of the product was very professionally handled when we missed our delivery date due to being out of town.

Where to stay in Hakone-machi

A getaway close to the capital, Hakone-machi offers a good range of accommodations, with a particular emphasis on luxury and upmarket hotels. Spa resort-style hotels, often with extensive views of the iconic volcano, sit in the main tourist areas, with their spa facilities using naturally warmed waters from the hot springs around the area. The more densely populated areas to the east house a good number of simple guesthouses and hostels. Staying in Tokyo and taking day trips remains an option for many visitors.
