This lake is rather uneventful but OK on a clear day when you can see Mt Fuji in the distance. Apart from this, there is nothing special about it.

Lake Ashi offers a range of enjoyable activities. The rather kitsch galleon themed boats offer a range of trips across the lake. Unfortunately, when we went low cloud meant that we didn't see Mount Fuji. There are various towns and villages around the lake which offer eating places, souvenir shopping and craft shops, e.g. Hakone-Mach and Moto Hakone. There are... More

The view around lake is beautiful. In clear day one can enjoy the Fuji mountain. We were lucky enough to see it for half an hour.

You can go on a pirate ship across this lake, very nice views! You are meant to be able to see Mt Fuji, but it's still worth the trip even if you don't.

When we were there Owakudani was closed for volcanic activity for that we took from Gora bus to Hakone Museum and then the second bus to Togendai station. It was little bit longer way but anyway we saw nice... More

Initially did not expect much from the boat ride however was amazed to see the beautiful scenery along the way before we alighted at the first stop to get on the ropeway. Sat on the top deck and was super windy despite the sunny weather. Should go for this ride to enjoy the great view
