Hakone’s Silver Grass Fields—The Unending Beauty in Seasons

仙石原 sengokuhara

Hakone is famous for its saunas and its majestic view of Mount Fuji. It is a popular destination for both Japanese and foreigners who are looking for a break away from the buzzing crowd of Tokyo.

But among all the famous spots in Hakone, one of the most commendable is the Pampas Grass Field or commonly known as ‘Silver Grass Fields‘ in Sengokuhara. Sengokuhara Pampas Grass Field covers a large portion of the west slope of Mount Hakone.

The reason why it is called ‘Silver Grass Field’ is because of its shimmering silver gold color during autumn which attracts a lot of visitors due to its breathtaking view. There’s a trail through the fields for the visitors to walk through and be surrounded by the grass field.

While the field is most visited in autumn, the grasses go through a series of seasonal changes throughout the year that are also attractive.

In summer, the field turns into bright green and into light yellow around September. The colors on this season look bright and abundant which is also a different kind of charm. By early November, the field changes its color again into whitish gold which looks as stunning as the silver color during autumn.

The best time to visit the Pampas Grass Field is in late September to early November but going there in any season would not be a problem at all.
