A drive from mount fuji to hakone would remind you of the picturesque landscape of switzerland. During autumn u see leaves of all colors and hues. Its a dream drive thru the silver grass of Hakone , in autumn. In case u take a conducted tour from Tokyo, pl avoid the lunch package. Take an option only for travel ,... More

The title pretty much sums it up! Some good views but overall pretty average boat ride although a good way to complete a loop around the hakone sites.

It was an average boat ride in the lake. Definitely worth to stand on the deck and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

If you are in the area and have the Hakone pass then you might as well as it forms part of the tourist route along with the cable cars. As for the boat ride, the views are quite nice but nothing breathtaking in my opinion. We went first class so that we could see the views from the top, I... More

It was a fun ride, especially for the kids (age 5 and 7). We got the first class tickets (only a few dollars more with the Hakone Free Pass), and I'd say it was well worth it! You got seats right at the very front. Make sure you board early so you can grab those front seats. There are only... More

Arrived at the harbour after alighting from the ropeway. The ride is most welcome after all the tiring bus and train rides around the areas. Have a moment of peace and enjoy the view as the ship cruised across the lake and arrived at Hakone-machi.

This was a calm cruise within a hectic holiday in Japan. As the weather had been poor the previous day the ship was not crowded - plenty of good seating to enjoy the views; fairly good commentary in english and easy walk via the Cedar Path to next port which has lots of shops selling the traditional wooden items. Snacks... More

The Hakone Sightseeing Ship takes you from Togendai station, where the Hakone Ropeway ends, across Lake Ashi and stops at Hakone-machi and Moto-hakone. It's a pleasant ride, a large ship, plenty of seating inside, but not many on the deck. You can catch a good view of the landscape here and if you're super, super lucky, you can see Mt.... More
