Pleasure boat ride in Lake Kawaguchiko is an alternative means to look around, particularly during nice weather condition that you can see Mt. Fuji reflection on the lake's surface. Although the charge of some yen 900 for about 20 minutes ride is a bit short...More

There are many ways to view Mt Fuji but I found this way of taking a cruise might be the best in my opinion. Positives: 1) Quite a reasonable price at 930 Yen per adult. If you tend to visit the Kawaguchiko Ropeway, Package price...More

You can buy combination ticket of ropeway and boat ride and bus ride at kawaguchiko station. The boat leaves every 40 mins and take around 20 mins. Nice to see Mount Fuji from the boat. Though it can be really crowded.

The cruise across Kawaguchi-ko is really beautiful. We got the first boat of the day at 9am and only had to share with five other people. We had plenty of room to walk around the top deck and see Fuji consistently on the whole cruise....More

Had an awesome time enjoying the calm of the lake while being able to view Mount Fuji in such a different perspective. I didn't think I'd get to still enjoy Mount Fuji while on the boat since it's seen all over while we're there, but...More

We hopped on the boat pretty quickly after visiting Iyashi no Sato and didn't run into a line. You just show them the pass bought at Kawaguchiko station or buy one there. The cruise itself is nothing special and lasts 20 minutes. It's just picture...More

We took the boat as part of a whole tour. But the boat ride itself wasn't that expensive. It wasn't a speed boat but more like a small ferry.

We booked thru TripAdvisor but due to bad weather the boat at Hakone was not available. Therefore the pleasure boat at lake Kawaguchi was free for us.
