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.

One of the most famous spot in Hakone. You can board the ship with hakone free pass and go to motomachi shrine (the beautiful lakeside shrine) and crossing lake aishi to ride a ropeway or cable car to explore more side of Hakone. The ship has coffee shop and provides adequate seating for passalengers.
