This park is awesome. It was a rainy day in Hakone, but we went anyway. Was not disappointed. Cheap reasonable price to get in. Plenty of green houses with an awesome variety of plants to see. Gotta keep your eyes open because there's neat plants tucked everywhere. The grounds were beautiful. Paths all around. A mix between beautiful natural mountain stone and more modern accommodating ways. The tea house with ceremony was like it's own little park. The experience was nice and came with a nice little personal tour of all the houses and bath. I would highly recommend attending this park. We went in March, so not as much going on outdoors but, I can only imagine how beautiful it is in bloom with it's extensive rose gardens and wide variety of other native fauna. We did not do any experiences, but the craft house is neat. Plenty of beautiful art pieces to purchase and we couldn't help but do so. The experiences looked fun and well set up. Kinda feel like we missed out but that was our decision. Keep note of the timing to receive your works, all clearly labeled. Most are day of, but some like ceramics and glass take time for proper completion.

A relaxing place to learn up some handy crafts,like making glassware, pottery, key chain, chain etc. Primary reason for the visit. As for the park, it is nicely kept, but was super quiet during winter and not much to see in the park at rhis time while strolling around. Perhaps it is not the best time to visit during winter. Even the coffee outlets were closed during my visit.

This place is absolutely beautiful! The park was clean and the varieties of flora and fauna was amazing! They even had a dedicated Christmas section which was beautiful and smell amazing! Had a mini tea tasting ceremony within the park as well (you can opt for the combine ticket at the counter).

If you love plants, this is a must-see attraction in Hakone. We were very impressed by the greenhouse and the care that went into each area, even during winter. There was even a Christmas-themed tunnel which was the star of the show. You can also enjoy a brief tea ceremony if you buy the discount package at 1100 yen, it was a great addition.

It was our last day in Hakone and we chose to visit the Gora Park gardens. We were pleasantly surprised with the huge variety of plants, flowers, and interesting walking paths. I was even a cafe where you can grab coffee or a drink along with a various selection of cakes. Thankfully on the south entrance there is bag lockers where you can quickly store your belongings to enjoy a hands-free walk of the gardens. We were also surprised to find a huge greenhouse area which housed botanical tropical plants. Ranging from ferns, bromeliads, Venus fly traps and even pineapples. There was also an amazing display roses in every color and variety you could imagine. There is also a big engraved stone which explained about the original man who created this garden back in approximately 1910 and how when it was created there was no people living in the area where the garden is situated. It was a very remote and uninhabited location in hokone and when they started construction the whole area was just barren rocks. It was a wonderful way to finish our holiday in Hakone.
