Review of Little Prince Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/10/13 Good intro to famous St Exupery book
Interesting small museum close to Hakone Highland hotel. Should be visited if you with kids in this area to introduce this famous book and get taste of French townscape and garden.
Reviewed:2019/10/12 gardens were nice but there is really not much else to see
Even if you are a fan of The Little Prince, I would still say the museum seems overpriced. The gardens are very pretty, but small. You can walk around the property and see re-created buildings and...
Reviewed:2019/09/22 Overpriced and not suited for foreigners
I found this “museum” extremely overpriced for the poor content you get. In addition, all labels in the exhibition part are only in Japanese. Same for the movie. Completely not suited for foreigners.

          Kanagawa Main Areas


          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.
