Hakone Venetian Glass Museum, Hakone-machi

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 Edition.

  • I could only describe it as a shop with an entry fee, there are some interesting objects but nothing that can justify the price, some people might enjoy it as it has its charm for couples and taking pictures.
  • This museum had some stunning glass pieces and would highly recommend a visit, I didn't capture too many photos of the glass but there are plenty and a lot of nicely finished grounds to explore including a ravine. It is one of the more pricy places to visit but worth the price!
  • Neat little spot with Italian theme. Personal sized pizzas available.decent taste reminiscent of Naples pizza.
  • Beautiful museum. Absolutely worth the trip (I even went in the rain and didn’t get to see everything outside). Tons of glass art from world-renowned artisans. I happened to be there on a day they held a concert inside. Phenomenal!
  • One of the most absolute beautiful places in the area. It was so unique and vivid with design and color. Absolutely extraordinary!
