The Museum enhances human sentiments through the beautiful gardens and old Japanese ceramics.

The Hakone Museum of Art was established in 1952 by Okada Mokichi (1882-1955). Soon after the end of World War II, Okada began energetically collecting works of Oriental art. To prevent these art works from being sold abroad, he opened the museum and made available to be viewed the works of art by many people. Located in the Gôra district of Hakone, 630 meters above the sea level, the museum is surrounded by beautiful gardens that are designed to exhibit the seasonal beauty of nature. Since the opening of the MOA Museum of Art (a sister museum) in 1982,the Hakone Museum Art focuses on displaying medieval Japanese ceramics from the Jômon period (10.000B.C-200B.C?) through to the Edo period (1615-1867).
