Volunteer for Hakone Estate and Gardens
Many volunteers assist as docents all year round, providing tours of the gardens for school groups, garden clubs, corporate groups, and many other individual groups. Our current docents include Arnie Cornez, June Kanazawa, Margaret Tomita, Noriko Ashihara, and Joanne Yamani. Hakone's success depends a lot on such dedicated volunteers who give many hours of dedication.
