  • 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..
  • 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.
  • Beautiful flowers and with TheHakone Free Pass it was free
  • Beautiful park with many things to see. The glass blowers or whatever they are called are really cool to watch. The green houses and different gardens have lots of pretty flowers and plants to see.
