Hakone Garden is the place where people would see the traditional Japanese style gardens!
The structure was so beautiful and cultural...that the movie "Memoirs of a Geisha" filmed scenes here!
They have matsuri events in the summer and they have many Japanese entertainment during the matsuri!

Hakone gardens is gorgeous. I love taking my out of town guests here. They have a yearly tea pouring ceremony that is awesome. You can purchase tickets to various ceremonies. The kids love the fish pond.

PROS: well maintained, unusual
CONS:

A well maintained Japanese garden that's actually within walking distance from my house. Part of the Memoirs of a Geisha movie was actually filmed there recently, which seems be a pretty good indicator of how beautiful it is. It is not at all uncommon for people to get married there. One of the really cool things that's there is a full sized house that was actually taken apart board by board from Japan and shipped over, where it was reassembled. A large number of its trees were also imported.

A very beautiful hidden little spot; perfect for a romantic afternoon of wandering. An absolutely beautiful place for weddings; with waterfalls, beautiful foliage and a stupendous coordinator. A hidden gem that not many people are aware of.

An absolutely beautiful and well laid out garden, climbing up a hill. You pull off of Highway 9 and into a different space - quiet, tranquil, green. You can feel yourself relax here.

There are number of paths to explore, with nooks and crannies to discover. There is a tea house to examine, and (with arrangments) they can demonstrate a tea ceremony.

They have a small but interesting gift shop. One of my favorite purchases was a walking stick made from bamboo pruned from their own stands.

I attended my cousin's wedding in this garden. It was BEAUTIFUL and PERFECT for a wedding. All the flowers are nicely tidy and standing (shows dedication to garden), grass is green, and it's nice and quiet.

They charge a fee for this which isn't too bad. I would highly recommend if you're the springy type of person.

Hakone Garden is beautiful Japanese garden nestled in the Saratoga hills. It is a very quiet and peaceful garden and you will feel peace and harmony there. The garden is very well kept with beautiful landscaping, a wonderful pond with bridge. bamboo garden and many hidden paths through the hill.
Hakone is a great place for special event like a wedding or to take wedding pictures. The garden is open 7 days a week and there is a fee for their parking lot. You should check out the garden if you are near Saratoga and don't forget to bring your camera.
