Lalique Museum, Hakone

From brilliant jewelry to gorgeous glass art

By Tomoko Kamishima    - 1 min read

The Lalique Museum always exhibits 230 pieces of stunning jewelry and glass art of René Jules Lalique (1860-1945), a prominent French artist who started his career doing jewelry design and glass art, and then later interior and architectural ornamentation. The museum has collected over 1500 items of his lifetime works, and rotates the displays twice a year. In the beautiful nature of Sengokuhara, Hakone, please soak in Lalique’s sublime artwork. 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。
