The glasswork is certainly impressive, even on an overcast and rainy day. I loved how the glass was incorporated into the beautiful garden areas. Amazing glasswork in the museum, a very diverse collection throughout.

Looks like part of a fairy tale with the crystal trees and curtain. Great indoor display in French style buildings. Beautiful garden with a selection of restaurants. We sat outside with a glass of wine and just enjoyed the scenery.

Visited this place it is one of the top rated attractions in Hakone. I wouldn't call it a must-visit attraction particularly if you've been to Venice, however if you really like glass art you would certainly appreciate it more than the average person. The gift...More

This museum features beautiful glassworks, both inside the buildings and out in the grounds. There are two separate museum buildings, one for classical glass pieces and one for modern glass art. There is also a colossal gift shop, though the items are quite expensive. Overall,...More
