The Hakone Open-Air Museum彫刻の森美術館

Art Museum

This was Japan’s first open-air Museum which was founded in 1969. Located on the grounds of a 70,000 meters squared premises with Hakone’s nature as a backdrop, the museum has a permanent display of approximately 120 masterpieces by modern and contemporary sculptors. Such large scale works of art couldn’t be displayed but for the outdoor space; there are also works of art which children can enter and play in, and you can touch the pieces of art as much as you want. At the Picasso Pavilion, there is the world’s top collection of 300 plus works which are open to the public. The hot spring foot bath which flows from the source is also popular. Alight at the Hakone Tozan Railway at Chokoku-no-Mori Station, from which it is a two-minute walk to the museum.

          Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo's most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
