Re: Scuplture in Tokyo/Japan

Akady - Thanks for posting the link to your nice gallery of photos from Hakone. I've been there before and it is a Sculpture park worth seeing.

I want to suggest you make the trip to Utsukushigahara Open Air Museum. There are more sculptures than there are at Hakone and it has a completely different feel.

It is located near what was loosely translated from a friend to me as the Japanese Alps. You can take a train to Matsumoto (see the castle) and then a bus from there. It is a bit of a trip, but the scenery is wonderful and if you are into sculpture then the park is well worth the time.

You photos make me want to visit Japan again, I noticed some airline specials going on right now for around $790 to Tokyo from the midwest.
