If you're looking for some fresh air, art and a day trip out of Tokyo's urban madness then Hakkone Open Air Musuem needs to be on top of your list. Plan for a full day on this one— it will be worth it.

This museum is one of the best sculpture museums I have ever seen. The setting is beautiful and the range of artists is amazing, featuring over 120 different ones. A few of the installations are great for children as they are interactive and allow then to climb on them. Be sure to soak your feet in the citrus-infused stream! Don't bother paying to rent a towel, just dry off in the sun.

One of most popular and most visited museums in Hakone which is covered in Hakone Free Pass. Hakone Open Air Museum is an unique and interesting museum which exhibits various modern sculptures in a huge open space. Using the natural beauty of Hakone makes this open space is exciting enough to pay a visit, especially on a shiny day. The museum also has few indoor spaces that exhibit any other artworks. The artworks of Picasso are one of the museum prominent collections. A right place for leisure and education.

“Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam’s crocheted playscapes, which have gone viral, have organic shapes and eye-popping colors; like something out of a Dr. Seuss book,” says Playscapes blogger Paige Johnson. “They are a unique way to experience an artwork...through play.” MacAdam’s Woods of Net at the Open-Air Museum is no exception. Knit entirely by hand, the playground allows children to crawl in, swing on, and jump through the vibrant netting. The work itself is sheltered by a Lincoln Log–esque pavilion, providing visitors a break from both the outdoor elements and the more adult-oriented exhibits at the museum.

This was an mostly outdoor sculpture park with 120 pieces of large contemporary art. Covers a vast area not on level terrain so be prepared to walk. They have 5 exhibition halls including the Picasso Pavilion, as well as pieces where children can play and a footbath fed by natural hot springs.

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.

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....
