The HAKONE OPEN-AIR MUSEUM
Founded in 1969 by the Fuji Sankei Group with the aim of harmonizing nature and art, this is Japan's first open-air art museum. 70,000 m2 of the museum's expansive grounds change with the seasons and weather, and visitors can enjoy a stroll through more than 120 works by Japanese and foreign masters of the modern and contemporary periods, including Rodin, Moore, and Miro.
There are also indoor exhibition spaces such as the Picasso Pavilion, where a diverse collection of about 320 works is sequentially exhibited, and hands-on art works.
There is also a hot spring footbath that uses the spring water that springs from the grounds, and restaurants and cafes that offer views of the Hakone mountains and the outdoor exhibition space, making it a relaxing place to spend the entire day.
