Why Lalique Museum Hakone is special ?

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. This museum dedicates itself to the collection of Rene Lalique, the French master of jewellery and glass design. The salon car used on the Orient Express, decorated by Lalique, is also on display.

The Lalique Museum in Hakone is for me the best attraction in the area. There is another glass museum and a wonderful art gallery in Hakone, but this museum is a stunning homage to one of the world's greatest designers. Lalique's career spanned around seven decades, during which his focus on creations significantly changed. This museum in Hakone carefully and beautifully reflects his works over the years, with exquisite examples of jewelry, furniture, and of course, lots of glass objets d'art. The exhibits are well-displayed with sufficient and appropriate lighting, but the only information displayed is in Japanese. Take your smartphone and read online about the exhibits as you go round. If you like art and design, this museum is a must. It is probably in the world's top three Lalique collections. Around the museum, there is a train carriage from the Orient Express with design and panelling by Lalique. For a fee (was 2,100 yen) you can enjoy tea in the carriage and feel the mood of a bygone era. Nice to see, but the tea is pretty poor. There is also a restaurant with French menu. The food is well-presented and not bad, but not outstanding. However, there are some good wines as the sommelier seems to know his stuff. Many people only visit Hakone as an afterthought to a trip to Tokyo. I would recommend at least two days in the area visiting all the sights, finding a good hot spring, and focusing on the Lalique museum. I'll go again.
