A relaxing 30 minutes to enjoy the lake and the hidden views only seen from the ship looking at the shore. Best spot is the top deck but ensure to bring a jacket in case of windy conditions. An old pirate ship look adds to the thrill of it.

The ship is so beautiful!! We don't see outside much as the fog is heavy. If the fog is worse, it ride to Moto-Hakone only (not go to Hakone-Machi) as safety come first. No choice to get bus to Hakone-Machi.

It was clear, but cold and windy. But fortunately, by the time we got through the line and onto the sightseeing ship, there were no more spaces where we could see the sights, such as they were. Instead we were crowded toward the center of the stern where we were partially shielded from the breeze. The 30 minute cruise to... More

We took a return journey from Togendai port. It took 30 minutes to Moto-Hakone and another 10 minutes to Hakone-Machi. We would suggest taking the cruise on q clear sunny day - so you will be able to see Mt Fuji together with the Hakone Shrine as a classic picture!

On a beautiful fine day in spring, we have been to Hakone, using the Hakone Free Pass which is a special pass for exploring Hakone serviced by Odakyu Railways. After sightseeing Owakudani, we took the Hakone Ropeway to Togendai. This Ropeway gave us a magnificent view of Mt. Fuji, because the weather was so fine. When we arrived at Togendai... More

Visited on March 2015 with a group of family and friends. After walking adventure, finally we can rest our legs for 45mins. With a big pirate ship, we were traveling from the pier to catch our bus to Hakone Yumoto. Great view and a must visit if you have Hakone Free Pass.

It was one of the 7 modes of Transportation we took for reaching Gora. The ship has a small cafe, souvenir shop, where you can also buy the hakone sightseeing ship kitkat. They also sell first class cabin seats on board, but for me it was not really worth seatig there. The views on balcony are better.

I really enjoyed the cruise on board the pirate ship. Just being out in the water on a ship really takes you to another place(figuratively and literally). Besides the ship, I think seeing Mt. Fuji while sailing along lake Ashi just adds to the trip. No rough seas here, just smooth sailing. The kids that were sailing along with us... More

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
