Combine the Japanese flair for gardens with a mountain setting and the absolute pinnacle of twentieth century sculpture, and what do you have? The Hakone Open-Air Museum.
It’s a great display, and well worth a visit. We were there two and a half hours, and we could have spent twice as long.
Unfortunately (from the pov of writing a blog) we’re staying in a ryo-kan, and I’m typing this with the laptop on a relatively low table and me standing. Uncomfortable? Very.
So all you’re getting is pictures! I hope you enjoy them. I can assure you that the real thing is much better!
The sculpture below is “La Pleureuse”. It’s awesome!
The next sculpture is “Symphonic sculpture”.
And finally, a piece on a more human scale – “Alba”
