What a gem! An amazing collection of sculptures by international artists placed in magnificent outdoor setting and surrounded by mountain views! It is definitely worth a visit, especially if you are in Hakone/Mt. Fuji area. This was opened in 1969 as the first open-air museum in Japan. Besides outdoor sculptures, there are also indoor exhibition halls – one of them, Picasso Pavilion, has a collection of works by Picasso (pottery, paintings, sculptures). There are interesting places for children to play, as well as stained glass tower to climb. You can easily spend a few hours here – walk around, take pictures, eat lunch at a restaurant, and end your visit with a hot spring foot bath.Recommended for:

The Open Air Museum is a nice afternoon diversion after doing the ropeways to see Mount Fuji. If you are coming down the mountain on the cablecar you head right and can get there with about 15 ish minutes of walking. Or you can take the train in Gora. I walked there faster than the train. Lots of modern art and sculpure fill the grounds. Theres also a Picasso exhibit. I was a little disappointed becuase the things I really wanted to experience and play on were only for kids. Boooooo....Recommended for:
