I had read very good reviews about the boat ride across the lake. Unfortunately for us, it was raining. The trip was not pleasant, and there were no views of Mt. Fuji. Not the fault of anyone but just bad luck for us. Maybe next...More

As part of the sightseeing route in Hakone, you can take the ferry ride from Hakonemachi-lo or Motohakone-ko to cross Lake Ashi to Togendai-ko. Enjoy the scenery and cooling ride while on the ferry crossing the lake.

Beautiful lake in the Hakone region, highly recommend taking the boat tour. On a good day you can see Mt Fuji, shops and restaurants around the lake are charming and worth a leisurely stroll
