Hakone Open-Air Museum

September 10, 2019
Ubiquitous #creativity ????????‍???? ..

Meaning present, appearing, or found everywhere, and if you know me well .. then you know I love to get lost inside an art gallery or #museum.

Bronze sculpture “Chimera Alata” by Marcello Mascherini.

Spreading almost 20 acres and surrounded by the beautiful mountains of Fuji-Hakone-Izu #NationalPark is the Hakone Open-Air Museum. It's the first of it’s kind in #Japan, and the #artsy atmosphere here is definitely present everywhere and for everyone. 

La Pleureuse Sculpture by Francois-Xavier and Claude Lalanne

Opening its gates in 1969, It houses over a thousand collections by artistic visionaries including #HenryMoore #ChuryoSato #YasuoMizui #TaroOkamoto and of course #Picasso himself.

The Soap Bubble Castle by Peter Pearce is based on a diamond molecule enlarged 8 billion times.

In any season you can leisurely stroll around the gardens, breath in that fresh county air, whilst discovering each historically fascinating and beautiful #sculpture and #artwork.

I loved it! My favourite was the lookout tower #symphonic sculpture by Gabriel Loire. You head inside, climb the spiral staircase whilst admiring the acoustics and beautiful crafted stained-glass windows. And when you get to the top you’re met with wonderful #panoramic views! 

 Also know as "Tower of the symphony", 336 m² of stained glass windows, the tower is 21 meters high and 8 meters wide.

One for the creative #bucketlist ?
