  • Beginning of December yet. That still leaves... And visitors visited expected little chest, but rumors and different lines not included. Was completely unmarked when I have to watch it that minute exhibits slowly. Works fewer than I had expected. And the MOA Museum of art in Atami, like Oka founder Shigeru Yoshida's private museum. There is a tea-room home was on the grounds of the hotel to Mr./Ms. Okada tea house. No 12 / moss green. With a chinchiklin feel. It was no-go areas where moss-covered garden in pictures!-! now walked walk while talking about. It was no doubt at the end of the garden and wonderful seasonal range mountains of Hakone Museum of art. And green day beautiful season fall season for revenge and want to enjoy Japan.

  • This museum feels a lot like Japan in ancient times, with exhibits from many different artists, and it was the red leaf season, and the whole museum was very beautiful, and it was proposed that the red leaf season visit

  • Whim, I visited. I would think that our institution's Garden, and good. Does not see the artifacts, mostly. I am sorry... Just walking through the Park, the mind becomes calm. I had tea table trick! By entering the us, please rest! Reduces the number of visitors, it is off the beaten path.

  • Best place to see the autumn leaves in hakone, unfortunately there was too many people and hard to get a empty shot, even in the early morning
  • You can come for the art, you can come for the nature, or just come for the serenity.
  • It's a excellent place to visit especially the garden. It'll be great when it's autumn colour.
  • Amazing moss gardens and water stream landscapes. Decent collection of artifacts inside as well
  • For many people, the attraction here will largely lie in the exceptionally beautiful gardens. Part of them consist of a shady moss-covered area and part of a more formal display of Japanese shrubs and trees. The whole thing amounts to what I think is the best small garden I have ever visited in Japan. We were there on an overcast day in late May, but I would imagine it would be gorgeous whatever time you visit - autumn especially of course. The museum itself provides a relatively small exhibition of Japanese artefacts that will likely only turn on an expert or aficionado of historically important porcelain and ceramics. For the layman, not much of stunning beauty or interest. Free parking is available across the street, and you can get a discounted joint ticket for the museum/grounds plus Gora Park nearby (also worth a visit)
