Hakone Venetian Glass Museum3.9
Hakone Venetian Glass Museum is the first art museum specializing in Venetian glasses in Japan, located at Sengokuhara, the northern part of the Hakone caldera surrounded with full of lush greenery. The museum exhibits over 100 modern and classical Venetian glassware from the 15th to 18th centuries including a goblet of the Rothschild family and a compote of the Medici family.
In the garden, from which the entire Owakudani Valley can be viewed, there is a 9-meter high crystal class arch made from around 160,000 pieces of crystal glass, which sparkles in seven colors reflecting the sunlight. You shouldn't miss it!
In addition, there are a lot of spots visitors can enjoy such as a workshop, a museum shop, and a restaurant where canzone live performances by an Italian singer can be watched.

That a place where you enjoy your time alone or with a family. Additionally, the place is enjoyable in the morning as well as during the night time. The constructions built with glasses is amazing both indoor and outdoor.
Even thought the museum considered to be a bit small in size but it is an advantage in my opinion.

Love the entire place. Worth the trip. Appreciating works of art is something I really love. Great ambience but a bit pricey though...

It's more of a store with glass articles than a museum. You're basically paying 1500 yen to enter the shop and poorly made replica of mediaeval buildings. There is a nice view of mountains though. Totally don't recommend.

Not a tourist trap! Beautiful glass artifacts, a gift shop that isn't outrageously priced. Multiple cafes and a decent restaurant, umbrellas everywhere to borrow for free, and gorgeous outdoor garden and a close up view of a raging steam. Worth it!

It may be interesting for people with fine taste and antique stuff. There are many artefacts from 17th century Venice.
However it is not a must go place in Hakone for others.
