Beautiful view from the museum on the mountains. Really nice garden. Very average museum itself. You should visit if you have some free time, but I wouldn’t suggest going out of your way to see it.

Small but lovely place. Owner is a talented photographer with big landscape photography experience. Photos are bright and rare. Coffee is good too. Cons: mostly landscape, the genre is narrow.

The gardens are extraordinary. Large rocks, a cascading stream, moss lawns tended carefully by hand. Shrubs and trees arranged into a delightful scene. The tea house is a serene place to view the gardens while enjoying refreshment. The museum is 5 large rooms over 2 floors, mostly displaying pottery dating back hundreds of years. No context, explanation, or 'all singing and dancing' multimedia like people want these days, but interesting and often beautiful objects worth seeing. There is a smaller museum hosting more pottery and some historical information about the founder of the museum.

The gardens are beautiful and the tea room very nice. Id suggest stopping by if you have some free time, but wouldnt suggest going out of your way to see it. The museum itself is small and has some very interesting pottery pieces but definitely not a must see, especially with Gora Park nearby. Still happy we went though.

We went in nov n managed to see The Sekirakuen Garden. It's a really nice garden. Took a lot of pics. Can b crowded but no problem taking pics as the people there r friendly. Just stand aside n wait for our turn if we want to take pic at that particular spot. Recommended place to visit in Hakone.
