Hakone Open Air Museum

Chōkoku-no-mori, (“the sculpture forest”), an intriguingly-named station on the Hakone Tozan railway line, is home to the Hakone Open Air Museum. The museum houses over 300 works by Picasso alone, as well as sculptures by many other famous artists, including Henry Moore, Rodin, and Miro.

We highly recommend taking advantage of the hot spring foot bath to rejuvenate your tired feet (you’ll want to take a handkerchief or a small towel to dry off with). Simply shed your shoes and socks, roll up your trousers, and lower your feet in to soak. Keep in mind that every foot bath has a hot end, closer to where the water flows in, and that further towards the other end the water will be somewhat cooler.
