More than 4000 traditional Japanese paintings have been collected in the Narukawa Art Museum. Each exhibition room is wide and relaxing. In addition, the observatory lounge of the museum has a breathtaking view of the best combination of Ashino-ko Lake and Mt. Fuji you will ever see. You can enjoy a wonderful panorama from a 50-meter long glass covered observatory avoiding wind, cold and strong sunshine, or go out in the garden and enjoy the view from there. An index of "Hakone's seven nice museums" series is here.

Japan is a small island nation, but we have a huge number of surprising things to discover here. Many of these delights can be found when you step off the main street onto small side paths. I really enjoy studying about and researching various aspects of traditional Japanese culture, and then sharing this information with visitors to Japan. I hope you will enjoy it, too! ARTICLE INDEX & PHOTOS: An index of most of my Japan Travel articles can be found at the entry page of my blog, and my photos are shown here. 日本はとても小さな国ですが、大通りから一本小道に入ればたくさんの発見があります。日本人が積み重ねてきた歴史を学びながら、古い建物や庭を訪ね、物語の舞台となった景色を眺めて、皆様といっしょに日本文化の奥深さを探求していきたいと思います。
