Hakone Venetian Glass Museum, Hakone-machi

4.1
Admire over a hundred pieces of antique glassware at Hakone Venetian Glass Museum. The museum’s display of Venetian glassware forms part of the private collection of Sadao Ukai, who had a penchant for intricate vases, tableware, lamps, and other glass pieces, mainly dating from the 15th to the 18th centuries. Besides the antique pieces, the museum also exhibits modern sculptures made out of Venetian glass. Rent a costume and a carnival mask for some fun photo ops, take a glass art-making class, or relax in the museum’s cafe and enjoy the mountain views. Hakone Venetian Glass Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Hakone-machi Edition.

  • The art museum, with its glass theme, it is conceivable that there are a lot of glass display, out of the expectation is that the glass display way beyond my imagination, whether it is the sun shining glass trees, or a whole side of the crystal glass walls, with music to make you feel like a fairyland.

  • I went there cause I thought I get free entrance due to the fee pass, turns out you only get 200 discount, so have to pay 1300. It is a museum with glasses from vienice, and no Japanese glass art, whi...  more »
  • You can grab lunch while listening to live music in the hotel's Italian restaurant, the museum itself is an exhibition of Venetian glass Center. Hope you support staff very nice and nifty.

  • Very special place. Open air exhibits are "must see", it is already worth the entrance fees. If you show your Hakone Tourist Free pass you do get a discount on entrance ticket. If you want a rest after a long walk, visit a small food and drink store in the garden, best pastry I have ever had.
  • Takes about 30 minutes to finish everything. The place is mainly focused on the entrance's "glass tunnel". Great environment with gorgeous view of autumn leaves. Great attraction for couples and families. Moreover, they also provide free locker space at the entrance, so you could comfortably enjoy the place. However, if you are taking the local bus, please check the timetable carefully. Sometimes, if the bus was too crowded, you will need to think for an alternative way.
  • This was a great European style exhibit space with very crafted glass blower artists in Hakone. Great value for the spend and the glass creations in the gift shop are also amazing price. The cafe is too busy for its own good. They need 2x the seating capacity.
  • Pretty sparkling/gleaming things everywhere; lovely gift shop, candy store and Italian restaurant all on site.
  • glass art for display and for sale. it is refreshing experience. better to go in the afternoon until dark.

Where to stay in Hakone-machi

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.
