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.

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

I’m not really into Venetian glass, but this was a nice spot. Really good if you are with your partner, nice date spot.

Very impressive glass art work from Venice and other countries and Italian food! The gift shop has many beautiful jewelries and decorations.

I visited here last October with my boyfriend. It was our two year anniversary and just days after Typhoon Hagibis so almost nothing was open due to the aftermath. We decided to go for a walk to explore and came across this museum. It was overcast and rainy, but everything looked so beautiful. We had lunch in the restaurant, it was also very good, and listened to live music. It was one of our favourite memories from our trip! Would highly recommend visiting. :)

An amazing experience. The Museum leading up to the shop is so beautiful. Not to mention the little area where you can pizza and drinks.
