We crossed the lake on a pirate ship with our grand children. The scenery is great and if the weather if right you may even see Mt. Fuji. Summer is not the best time for viewing Fuji, but we did get a couple of views while traveling to the lake and while on the lake.

It was a bit of a dull day when we went so we did not see the view of Mt. Fuji which was disappointing. However, putting that aside, I found the trip in general rather disappointing. The boats that take you across the lake are so out of keeping with the area. (think Lake Windemere with Disney style pirate ships)... More

We came here last November as Hakone Ropeway was still closed due to the volcanic movements. As we stayed by a nearby ryokan, we decided to come down here, as for being honest, nothing much else to do in hakone. You can use your hakone free pass to travel here with bus. Your pass also allows you to take the... More

The day we arrived at Lake Ashi there was quite a wind blowing so we were unable to take the ropeway cable car instead we were loaded onto a pirate ship heading for the far side of the lake... the ship was a bit hit with the japanese tourists... if you are looking for mount Fuji... it is not visible...

It is nice but not the best. We did this as we stayed in a ryokan in Hakone and that is well worth doing.

Great views of lake, mountains, ropeway, ships, shrines and Toriis. You will probably take the 'pirate ship' across the lake and explore Hakone Machi-ko which is good for a lakeside walk

Travelers : My family of 6. My husband and I with 4 kids. 17, 14, 12 and 9. We visited on Dec. 24th. We had visited Hakone to get a look at Mount Fuji. Which, sadly was not visible because of clouds. We then proceeded on the pirate ship on Lake Ashi. It was pleasant. But was not notable, sadly.
