The Okada Museum of Art opened in October 2013 in Kowakudani, Hakone. With a total of 5 floors and an exhibition area of about 5,000 m2, the vast hall boasts the largest indoor exhibition area in Hakone, and about 450 works of art such as Japanese and Oriental ceramics and paintings are always on display. The museum was conceived with the desire to carefully protect the works of art that have been passed down in Japan, share the joy of encountering beauty, and pass it on to the next generation. The front of the museum is decorated with the large mural "Kaze Toki" (2013) by the contemporary Japanese painter Kotaro Fukui, who is 12 meters long and 30 meters wide. After viewing, you can enjoy a footbath cafe that flows 100% from the source and a walk in the garden.
