[Okada Museum of Art]
Marvel at a grand collection of oriental art in the midst of nature in Hakone
Okada Museum of Art is a private art museum that was built on the former site of Kaikatei, a hotel for foreigners in the mid-Meiji period. The museum has about 450 pieces of Japanese, Chinese, and Korean art on permanent display. The works range from antiquity to modern times. The exhibits are arranged by era and school, and there are also corners for special pieces and thematic exhibition spaces. All this and more make this a museum that is well worth a visit. After feasting your eyes and mind on art, spend the rest of your time at the museum whichever way you want: take a stroll around the garden (for an additional fee), enjoy a footbath while admiring the huge mural "Wind/Time" by Kotaro Fukui, or take a break at the restaurant, Kaikatei.
Enjoy works of art in a quiet space with subdued lighting. (3rd Floor, Exhibition Room 1.)
