Mission Statement



We are dedicated to conserve and enhance Hakone Estate and Gardens for the enjoyment and benefit of the public, to preserve its Japanese authenticity for future generations, to promote a deeper understanding of Asian Cultures, and to serve as a global forum for art, music, culture, and ideas.

Description

One of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s premier sites and nearly a century old, Hakone is the oldest Japanese and Asian estate, retreat and gardens in the Western Hemisphere. It is located on 18 acres of magnificent beauty nestled in the verdant hills of Saratoga overlooking Silicon Valley

Hakone offers our visitors an international cultural venue to celebrate civilizations from throughout the world. Guests are provided an opportunity to experience a palpable calming of life’s journey within this masterpiece of architectural and botanical beauty.

Whether you leisurely stroll the hill and koi pond garden, ascend the moon bridge, have tea overlooking the dry landscape garden, or enjoy quiet reflection in Hakone’s tea and bamboo gardens, you will experience the elixir of art and nature in seamless unity.
