Hakone has beautiful untouched nature and is known as an old ascetic training center. It has been a famous resort destination since the Meiji period (1868-1912) because of its splendid scenery. Kowakien is located in the centre of Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park and is filled with the peace and relaxation of the lush forest.
In front of the terrace, we have the villa gardens of the top family within the Mitsui clan, which were constructed in the 3rd year of the Taisho period (1914). They were incorporated into our grounds with our expansion into a hotel and so live on.
