Onshi Hakone Park (Onshi Hakone Koen)4.0
A park with a land area of approximately 160,000 square meters on the Togashima Peninsula in the Lake Ashi-no-ko, Hakone Town, Kanagawa prefecture. In 1886, a summer villa for the Imperial family and their foreign guests was constructed on this site and there were buildings including the western- and Japanese-style buildings, the official residence and barracks. They collapsed due to the Great Kanto Earthquake and the Northern Izu Earthquake and the reconstruction plan was called off by Japan's entry into the WW2. After the war, in 1946, this Imperial site was given to Kanagawa Prefecture and opened to the public as the Onshi Hakone-koen Park (Onshi means "an Imperial gift"). Today in the middle of the park there is the Lakeside Observation Building, which was build by imitating the original Western-style Building, and it exhibits plans and models of the Imperial villa on its 1st floor. On its 2nd floor, there is a tea room Ryokushi-an, a lounge and a balcony with a splendid view of Mt.Fuji, Lake Ashi-no-ko and green mountains.

Somewhat hidden park. Somewhat because it does have its own parking lot, but even when we it was about 80% full, yet the park has lots of space. It is worth it to go to the lower lake trail as well as going to the high trail as well. Both have views that are worth seeing.
