Hakone Gardens

Hakone Gardens Hidden Gem

GEM DETAILS:

Hakone Gardens hidden gem is truly a beautiful hidden gem in the San Francisco Bay Area. The moment you step inside, it feels like you are in Japan. This is a relaxing and beautiful place to spend time with family and friends. If you are a photographer, I recommend that you arrive early to avoid parking issues and people traffic. This place is very busy on the weekends.
