A tranquil place of piece and harmony

Come experience Hakone, the oldest Asian and Japanese estate in the Western Hemisphere–eighteen acres of magnificent beauty nestled in the verdant hills of Saratoga overlooking Silicon Valley. Imagine Japanese gardens accented with an arched footbridge over a beautiful Koi pond with waterlillies and a cascading waterfall. Strolling along the winding paths, viewing the many sculptured trees, your guests will enjoy the unique setting of these beautiful gardens. The ambiance of Hakone Estate and Gardens is so special that you will always hold warmest memories of your wedding.

Hakone offers several different choices for your morning and evening wedding ceremony and reception. The Cultural Exchange Center is a replica of a 19th century Kyoto tea merchant’s house and has a spacious deck overlooking the valley. The Lower House is adjacent to a serene Zen meditation garden. Several lovely outdoor settings are available in the gardens, including the Madrone Mound, Wisteria Pavillion, and Pond Garden.
