After Japan’s Meiji Era (1868-1912), the Gora area was developed as a summer resort area for people in the southern part of Tokyo,
and the Hakone Gora Park itself was founded in 1914 as a family resort destination for nobility and other members of the upper class.
In 1957 a botanical garden and hands-on craft workshops were established.
