Most people would probably come here to take a photo with the Torii facing the lake. It's a very scenic shot and there's an orderly line to take a photo, so that's good. Once in front, just ask the person behind you to help snap...More

Japan is steeped in history and this is not to be missed! We found Japan easy to navigate, with many subtitles in English on Street Signs, Trains, and Roadways. Love how they have passed their history down from one generation to the next!

A must visit when in the region! Make sure you also take the opportunity to head out on Lake Ashi! If you are lucky you can get a glimpse of Mt Fuji from here as well.

A must see place near lake Ashi in Hakone. We arrived at dusk and were lucky to see the golden hour of the day, we witnessed the majestic views of the sunlit shrine, and the magic of the place as the sun went down and...More
