Excellent way of enjoying views of Mt Fuji, whilst having a hot bath. Facilities are a bit old, you can see it from the entrance. The establishment needs a thorough renovation, but overall it is a nice place to spend a rainy day.

Enjoyed the rich collection of artworks.
100 paintings to demonstrate the 100+ years.
Not just the history, it shows beauty of the paintings also.
Got impressed by many of them.
Thank you very much.
Around the museum, there is a walking path in the forest.
Walked about 10 minutes.
I would recommend this also.

NAME: Fuji Bussharito Heiwa Park (Gotemba Peace Park)
LOCATION: Gotemba, Japan
TIME OF YEAR: March 13
LENGTH: 45 minutes
RAVE: Beautiful greenery and shrines and views
RAGE: Cherry blossoms lacking and Mt. Fuji blocked by clouds
LOWDOWN: This was part of our week long Golden Route Cherry Blossom tour with All Japan Tours. There are supposed to be great views of Mt. Fuji from Gotemba Peace Park but this day it was obstructed by clouds. The park is supposed to be magnificent to see during this time year (late March) when cherry blossoms should be in full bloom. We counted exactly zero bloomed cherry blossoms (you can't predict mother nature though). Despite my tone, this was actually a peaceful visit. Beautiful greenery/shrubbery and Buddhist shrines and statues. I oddly felt quite calm strolling around this park...this peace park. Great scenic views as well.

It's not only a service area on a highway but a great attraction. It is themed with Evangelion, featuring lots of sold-only-here goods.
You'll be surprised by the toilets being spotlessly clean and futuristic.
Mt Fuji can be viewed most beautifully around here.
Definitely worth a trip!

The site is a villa belongs to late Highnesses Prince and Princesses Chichibunomiya but now it is open for public. Entrance fee is Y300 but foreign visitor can get discount (become Y250).
The garden is not big but there are lots of seasonal flowers there. Spring-Autumn is the best time to visit this site. You can enter the villa building and read some history about Prince and Princesses Chichibunomiya there. They also provide hot tea there.
To go here you can use free shuttle bus or using bus. The free shuttle bus stop is located at the east exit of JR Gotenba station, just in front of the public toilet.
Take the bus at: 9:50, 11:10, 12:20 or 13:50.
Then go back to Gotenba station at: 11:50. 13:20, 14:20 or 16:10.

Interesting place, would be good for families to visit and better in the summer. Not the best experience as we don't speak or read Japanese. There was very little English on the exhibits and spoken by the staff.

It's a nice little adventure to walk down into the moss covered rocky opening, and stoop around inside in the semi-darkness. Not something you would go out of your way for though. It's a bit hard to find without specific instructions (but once you know the way the online instructions make sense), the station guys weren't even sure what we were talking about, I had to show them the romanji name on my phone and eventually they gave us a brochure and map in Japanese, which did not have specific instructions from the station. Funnily enough, I was pronouncing it the same way as them. I'm quite good with languages and intonation, and couldn't hear any difference in pronounciation. Anyways. Combining the online instructions from other bloggers helped us on our way to the river, and fortuitously bumping into a construction worker who spoke excellent English and escorted us over the building works on the river up to the main road helped us the rest of the way. Will post pictures with instructions when I get them off my camera.

I love every piece, especially the perfume section with original bottles.
We had a short private tour by one of the guides at the museum. It was very helpful. She chose her favourite pieces and elaborated on them.
We also met a lovely French lady, tour guide outside that help us a lot to go around and made our trip much easier.
Thank you all again!
