This was a lovely little museum with come really great local art. There is also a beautiful seating area that overlooks Mt Fuji and the lake. There is also a cafe with the same outlook. A great place to relax. Really easy to access via the Hakone bus or the Hakone Cruise ship.

A very nice site and building. Note-the museum is open at 9am, cafe at 10.

A limited amount of artwork on display and much of it not particularly impressive.

I visited the museum located in Hakone Lake Ashi quite late in the evening with a tourist bus. It was a rainy day so I was not able to enjoy the picturesque view of lake Ashi and Mt. Fuji from the observation gallery. It was a small museum but it could be an itinerary which not to be missed if you are in the area.

We spent some time here having ascended the elevators to enter a collection of great Japanese artwork from painting to carving. The subtlety of the brushwork just stopped us with its detail and colour. Room after room celebrated a series of great artists. Moving and powerful.

To be honest, we went to this museum because it was the ONLY place with a cafe open for a late breakfast in the ENTIRE town. The little sandwich was perfectly fine, but what made it most enjoyable was the lovely view of the lake (Mt Fuji was hidden by clouds). The art collection is small but interesting. Perhaps not enough by itself to warrant a trip, however. What I enjoyed the most was the collection of lovely kaleidoscopes, which visitors can look into and spin by hand

I was appalled at the treatment I was given at a visit with my wife to the Museum. My wife wanted to visit the museum and I was with her. I have Parkinson’s Disease and when we visited the museum my medication was low so I was struggling to walk so could not go round the museum. They virtually chucked me out all I wanted was a seat to sit and wait for my wife who was looking round.

I have been touring Japan for about 10 days we were over for the World Parkinsons Congress in Kyoto and I have to say this has been an exception to the normal very gracious manners of the Japanese people.

I would like to hope the museum reviews their policy for people with a disability.f

Fortunately we arrived on a fine day, and the view of the lake and Mt Fuji from the panoramic windows of the lounge was spectacular. A real work of art. The same cannot be said for the gallery's collection of paintings - most glossy kitsch. The only collection with a touch of class was a few Japanese fans. A bit of a waste for time, except for the view.

As we walked into the museum, a spectacular view of Mt Fuji literally took our breath away and we had to sit down. Our view was of Lake Ashi with Mt Fuji right above the lake! Within 30 minutes, the clouds rolled in!
The art on display were mostly Japanese water colors and very nice to look at.

We came here on a very windy and cold day in Hakone. Would definitely recommend coming here for a cup of coffee taking in the incredible views of Mount Fuji if the weather is cold!
Nice little cafe, can’t say we really looked at the art at all though!

This museum, beautifully set at the south end of Lake Ashi, with a view of Mt. Fuji on clear days (not always possible), has a stunning collection of Japanese paintings by 20th Century artists. Beautiful artwork on display - very restful - subjects focus largely on nature. One of the best museums we visited during our month-long visit to Japan and Korea.
