History of Hakone

The idea for Hakone, which in recent years celebrated its centennial, was sparked in 1915 when philanthropists Oliver and Isabel Stine attended the Panama Pacific Exposition in San Francisco and fell in love with Japanese culture.

This inspired them that year purchase 15 acres of land in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, for the purpose of building their own Japanese garden and estate.

In 1916 Isabel acquired pieces of the Japan Pavilion from the Panama Pacific Expo for later usage.  In 1916 she (and her son John) explored many gardens in Japan, noting her favorite elements from each.

She worked with architect Shintani Tsunematsu and landscape architect Naoharu Aihara to build their Japanese style retreat, incorporating the Japan Pavilion pieces and ideas from her journey to Japan.

Major Charles Lee Tilden purchased the property in 1932 and operated Hakone as a private retreat. He hired Japanese-trained landscape gardener James Sasaki to make improvements to the gardens and build several additional structures such as a mon, upper pavilion, and wisteria arbor.

Maintained by the Hakone Foundation, Hakone Estate and Gardens is one of the oldest Japanese gardens in the Western Hemisphere.

  4. I would like to let all know that the size of your Penis really matters in your relationship or marriage. I got married to my wife about 1 month after we met on a photo studio, we lived happily for the first 3 months of our marriage until i and my wife started having quarrels at home because i couldn't satisfy her on bed with my little penis. Actually my penis was very small, it measured about 4.5 inch long on erection and i am 39 years old. My wife said it was forbidden by the women of this world. My wife started sleeping with other men outside. Sometimes i will return from work without finding my wife at home and whenever i call or ask her where she was, she will always snub at me and sometimes just tell me to go get a larger dick. All this continued for a long time and it hurt me so much that i was at the edge of breaking up on the marriage till when i read about a doctor called DR.OMOHAN. online. I never thought i could smile and be in a happy marriage again if not for the help of DR.OMOHAN. I got the doctors Emails:(dromohanherbalmedicine@gmail.com ) on the internet and i emailed him, and he got back to me with some encouraging words, he got me some herbs cream which i use for just 8 days and i began to feel the enlargement of my penis, and without surgery. This went on for a little period of about 10 days and to my surprise my wife keeps screaming that she love my big dick now. Now my wife no longer cheat on me, and my penis is now about 10.5 inches long on erection and off course very large round. And now my wife uses breasts, hips and bums enlargement. I and my wife are very happy for the help rendered to me by DR.OMOHAN , and i want to say a big thanks to Doctor for the help. You can contact the Doctor now on his Email:( dromohanherbalmedicine@gmail.com ) Am thankful to the doctor for helping me.
