Lake Ashinoko, the crater lake formed by the eruption some 3,000 years ago, is the primary attraction of the Hakone region. The fine views of the lake, in combination with the distant Mount Fuji, can be enjoyed from cruise boats, camping grounds, and motorways. There are also cafes, restaurants and hiking trails that provide a great vista.

Take the pirate ship cruise that links the two ends of the narrow lake for 30 minutes. One end, Togendai, has a 4km-long ropeway that connects with Hakone Tozan Line, Japan's first mountain railway. You can rent a swan boat to paddle around in, or sit at the jetty to fish rainbow trouts. Visibility tends to be better during the colder seasons than in summer.

Really nice ships and always on time. It definitely worth the upgrade to first class. You pretty much get a whole section to yourself on the way there and back. On the first trip we had the entire back area and on the way back we had the entire front area. It was a little hazy when we went, so we couldn't make out MT. FUJI....if that's your goal, it needs to be extra clear but you can always go up the trolley.

The lake is beautiful and a real treat for the eyes. It is easy to get there and ideal out stop for a day trip from Osaka or Tokyo.

Beautiful lake views from the pirate ship. Can't see Fuji from here but it was still a lovely view.

The contrast of Lake Ashi and Mt.Fuji is definitely worth seeing.
