  • Very beutiful Japanese garden with green moss.You can drink Japanese old style tea.
  • 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
  • old museum and dull exhibition, go there only for its amazing 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.
