Hakone Gardens Reviews
I like Japanese gardens for their ability to convey the feelings of being one with nature, serenity but not solitude, just being away from the bustle of a hectic lifestyle more prevalent now. Hakone i... more »
My friend and I chose Hakone Gardens as our Election Day escape. It was a perfect choice, even though the garden was no longer in full bloom. Many plants had been trimmed back and dead-headed for the ... more »
If you like Japanese Gardens and Architecture, this is such a gem. Small but you can spend an hour or so just ambling around. The gift shop is pleasant too. You're also very close to downtown Saratoga... more »
Quite a lovely Japanese garden, with a nice bamboo grove and some of the fattest koi you've ever seen! Looks like they have tea ceremony meets (chakai) on Sundays, and there are a few Japanese-style buildings for events. Otherwise, no food or drink in the garden. The entrance fee is $10, which feels a little steep. If you live in the area, there seems to be an annual pass that would make more sense. Parking is free.
Come here every year spring and fall, whenever you come you can see all different beautiful view. $10 for ticket, if you love this garden don’t forget the annual pass for $45.
Beautiful Japanese garden, after reading the reviews I expected that it would be really small, but was pleasantly surprised. Nice pond with koi and turtles and a bamboo garden with a walking path. There was a wedding taking place that day and it could be a good venue for a special occasion. Parking lot is good, enough space to park without having to wait (on a weekend.) I think $10 per person for entry is somewhat steep and be careful about rules regarding photography (you might need a permit that costs $100.) Paths are uneven so wear appropriate footwear and watch your step - there are iron rods that jut out from the bottom of the stairs that could inflict damage.
Very nice Japanese garden. What makes this place special is that it is set up as an estate.
Beautiful gardens, short hikes to walk in the serene settings, and a lovely pond. Definitely looks like walking into a different world for those living in the fast-paced Bay Area. I have been here many times and a visit always elevates the mood -- this last time I had actually arranged a business event here. They rent out the cottages for all day team events, they can provide lunch as well as projectors etc etc -- very nice and convenient to get together with your team in a very different environment than office.
