    It’s not a big museum, just two floors filled with a very nice selection of porcelain and ceramic work. And similar to other Japanese museums, the exhibitions are very minimal, clean and quiet. There ...  more »

    Museum is a garden, exhibits no more or not eye-catching, but the courtyard is definitely worth the ticket price. Although it is summer, but some of the leaves have turned yellow. There is a tea house can sit down and enjoy courtyard views.

    Beautiful and big Japanese style garden is very nice and chilling. You can fancy a cup of matcha tea in the cafe (but it's NOT tea ceremony) in the middle of the garden.

    We went in nov n managed to see The Sekirakuen Garden. It's a really nice garden. Took a lot of pics. Can b crowded but no problem taking pics as the people there r friendly. Just stand aside n wait for our turn if we want to take pic at that particular spot. Recommended place to visit in Hakone.

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.
