Walk the streets of Hakone to see something beautiful
Japanese architecture is really unique in the world. There have been influences from around the world, different periods of time, but most importantly the domestic development of techniques using Japanese materials. In Hakone you can take a tour exploring the traditional wood work techniques of temple builders, see the western influenced designs from a century ago, and explore the Japanese inn.
The designs, buildings, and places of Hakone give you a chance to learn and feel the history and culture of Japan. Even exploring the entrance and hallways of a traditional Japanese ryokan can give you insight that would be hard to discover anywhere else. There are also pieces of modern architectural masters hidden throughout the hills of Hakone as vacation villas or art museums. We encourage you to explore the details to see the big picture.
