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.

  • 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. Try the open air museum instead. Would give 0 stars if allowed.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Impressive historical pieces, sweet layout with sparkling trees everywhere. Serene surroundings. I very much enjoyed my visit.
  • 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.
