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.

  • I visited for the first time. Is the name of the Museum of fine arts, the exhibition of famous works of art there is not. But hydrangeas and glass objects, beautiful buildings and gardens, and the big lunch us on the terrace while watching the owakudani, while listening to the live performance of the canzone it. Guests can pamper themselves in the very comfortable. Also as a June event on Saturday and violin live music (free) in the Museum of fine arts held, and were able to enjoy the great performance. It is recommended that event information will be verified in advance if you are going.

  • Museum of things too around may be there, but not in a terrace Cafe, wants to use it. Fruit tea with fresh fruit is nice.

  • Glass art is great, but very good grounds. Just roses and hydrangeas bloom, lovely crystal glass objects. Invited musicians in the halls of Venetian Glass Museum, Venice mainly active around the world, there are Museum concerts. Violin concert was when we went, but very rhythmic and powerful brilliant, was impressed. I thought it a nice concert ranged more than works of art.

  • Don't bother paying ¥1400. Worst experience of my whole 3 month trip to Japan. The Glass is nice but not worth the entrance fee. Underwhelming. Boring. Maybe it's a novelty for the orient but I'd rather save my money and go to Europe. Would have been less disappointed had I spent $15 on eBay & the item not show up. Try the open air museum instead. Would give 0 stars if allowed.
  • Nice piece of glasses to see. Nothing very special but if you are around, it worth to visit. If you are lucky you can listen live violin concert from an expert. This part is the most enjoyable part. You can check the schedule of the concert from the museum's website.
  • We felt as we were transported to Italy during rennaisance. The enjoyed the Venetian ambience and the story of glass making. We could attend a live perfomance of an Italian Violinist. Totally worth it!
  • Probably one of my favorite places in hakone. I can't believe how lovely it was. Perfect for a date
  • It was s rainy morning otherwise we would skip it. Nonetheless it was a pleasant experience but the tickets are overpriced. It might be exotic to Japanese people but after all why not to go to Venice if you are interested in Venetian glass.
