Hakone's Venetian Glass Crystal Trees

Museum Christmas Holidays Hakone-Yugawara Kanagawa

Two crystal trees are wooing visitors at Hakone Glass no Mori Venetian Glass Museum, southwest of Tokyo.

One of the trees is around ten meters tall, and the other eight. Nearly 150,000 crystals are used altogether for the works.

Operators will replace the star atop the tree with a heart after Christmas. They plan to display the trees until March 14.
