All reviews pirate ship boat ride lake ashi hakone free pass short cruise cable car moto hakone top deck togendai ko beautiful scenery first class day trip sunny day sightseeing cruise tori gate fuji san enjoy the view
We took the boat cruise on Lake Ashi and it was a beautiful lake surrounded by beautiful scenery (including Mount Fuji). There are also a couple of great small-town stops along the lakefront, with nice restaurants and shops to peruse. Very relaxing experience!
The ride in the ship is quiet and serene as you are mesmerised by the beautiful "koyo" (autumn leaves) on either sides of the river. Lake Ashi is also beautiful during sunset. So would recommend one to be present at the Hakone-machi side during sunset....More
I went with my wife and mother in law on the ship, i thoroughly enjoyed the scenery and the whole adventure of being on the Lake and spent a bit extra going 1st class.great views, didnt Fuji san that day due to the cloud cover...More
The boat only sails at specific times and can get quite busy so it’s best to queue up early to be sure you can get on the boat you want
Most people just wander around the top deck taking photos and there are some

In addition, the Hakone Free Pass is around 4,000 JPY, that includes an unlimited pass to tozan train, hakone ropeway, hakone cable car, lake ashi cruise, odakyu buses, etc. If you are planning to do only 3 activities half day is enough and i don’t think purchasing Hakone Free pass would be practical. Just bear in mind too that the first train from Shinjuku Tokyo to Hakone departs around 7 am and reach at around 9 am. I am not sure though the schedule of Romance Car, you can inquire about all these in advance at Odakyu Customer Service Center in Shinjuku Station. They have a number but I no longer have it.
Please note as well that each areas are quite far from each other, it’s a bit exhausting to do all for a half day based on my experience. Check too if there is a direct bus to Kawaguchiko as I believe you will have to take a bus to Gotemba and from there, there should be a bus to Kawaguchiko.
What we did a few months ago is the other way around, we’ve started from Mount Fuji area first as there is an early bus from Shinjuku that departs at 6 am (prior booking is required) — it is advisable to check where the bus station is prior to avoid missing it.
We’ve allocated 2 days for this trip as the travel time is really long and there were lots of places worth seeing. Recommended number of days for Hakone and Fuji is 3 days and buying yhe Fuji Hakone Pass would be practical. Please do let me know if you have any other questions. I hope this help.
