Weekends: Hakone Open Air Museum

I realized that I leave little room for surprises on my weekend excursions to other cities and countries. The greatest surprise so far was the Hakone Open Air Museum. Due to some train-related misadventures, I arrived in Hakone a little later than I wanted to and thought that I’d rush through some of the sites to make up for time. This museum abruptly nipped that plan in the bud. The museum has a pretty impressive collection including works by Picasso. It is by far the strangest museum I have been to. As you wander around the grounds, it’s hard to not be overwhelmed by the dramatic backdrop of the mountains.
