Corporate Sponsors

Hakone offers numerous opportunities to sponsor and receive corporate donor recognition for the enriching programs in the arts, music, history and other performances hosted at Hakone.


Take advantage of our IRS tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) status to receive a tax donation for auction items for our annual festival or a special fundraising event at Hakone. The benefits are many:

  • Recognition: Enhance your brand image when you sponsor superb events at Hakone

  • Reach: Our audience is high-value, including many local business and technology leaders

  • Relaxation: Entertain clients and enjoy unique experiences in the world-famous Hakone Gardens as you underwrite one-of-a-kind programs

  • Reward: Highlight key employee or partner efforts with memberships or tickets to special events.

Please write or call the Hakone Foundation offices at 408 741-4994 and we will be happy to discuss the various possibilities with you.


Leading members of the Japanese Corporate Community recently helped launch the Hakone Corporate Affiliate Program, an annual corporate membership program that offers a unique blend of corporate retreat benefits and perquisites for all members. The program offerings provide members a wide array of opportunities to experience an inspiring setting for strategic planning, company presentations or facility usage ideas unique to each company's needs. Many corporate members marvel at the opportunity to spend days in a tranquil setting just minutes from the heart of Silicon Valley.
