  • It is centered on the pottery Museum. You can see the history of the pottery, and exhibits from the Jomon pottery through to contemporary works, few are. Recommended here is the museum itself is good, but many say is beautiful garden. Beautiful Sheen green I visited during the rainy season, because it was raining, but the MOSS garden. I heard that during this season is amazing. I think certificate Matcha green tea and sweets and admission ticket which is bought it and when you bowl of tea while watching the MOSS garden at real Union. Looks pretty good. In addition to MOSS stone Paradise Road in the bamboo garden, Hagi, special exhibits, such as seasonal and can enjoy it.

  • Very beutiful Japanese garden with green moss.You can drink Japanese old style tea.
  • Hakone museum of art has magmificent moss park. Incredible both in spring and in Autumn.
  • 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.
  • If you are interested in ancient items, this is the place you should visit
  • 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.
