The Glass Forest

We visited the Hakone Glass Forest, a Venetian glass Museum and Italian Garden during our stay in Hakone.
The museum had impressive displays but the real treat was the gorgeous European style garden that made me feel like I was in Belgium. I especially loved the crystal trees that twinkled in the sunlight.
The gardens also showcased seasonal flowers such as lavender and cosmos.
There is a little tea house in the garden where an Italian singer entertained us with "It's Amore" and other Italian tunes while we had our tea and snacks.
I had the Chiffon cake with fresh whipped cream and apricot jam with fresh fruits. This is a great romantic spot to go on dates with your lover. Such a cute place!
