Hakone`s Museum of Saint Exupery and the Little Prince
This is the only museum in the world dedicated to the Little Prince. If you love the little character, or have never been to France, this museum, and recreated French village is a fun break from Japan.

You can enjoy a seemingly real French town and European garden. The museum which details the life of Antoine de Saint-Exupery is interesting too.

My friend from Korea and I really enjoyed it.
If you live in Japan, or are from Asia, and have never been to Europe, or are a fan of the Little Prince, – I highly recommend this museum. Japanese do things well, and this museum is no exception!
It is also near the Hakone Venetian Glass Museum, so you could always go to both!
