It was a lovely sunny morning, perfect for a cruise around Lake Ashi. Even better it is included in the pride of the Hakone free pass. We just went one way. The cruise was smooth and quiet. Staff were helpful and food and drinks were available for purchase. Perfect position to view Fuji if the weather is right.

With a number of choices by the lake, we opted to take the cruise to the other end of the lake and cable car and train home. Easy easy.

fun for the family, they only start every 40 mins so plan accordingly. The view was beautiful, it gets foggy halfway through the trip but we enjoyed it anyways

Worth the trip across the lake, for the scenery and the fun of the boat. On a hot day, we had a lovely breeze on the water. Make sure you have the Hakone Free Pass to travel on this, and many other things

The pirate cruise was on the tour itinerary and I thought it was going to be hokey. I have to admit, it was very enjoyable. The cruise was free due to our Hakone passes but we decided to upgrade to 1st class, $4, that allowed access to the front of the boat. We got the Black Pirate ship which looked... More

I bought the first class ticket. As informed, the difference is that I got the chance to view at the front deck compared to the normal ticket. This can be purchased with about 400 yen TOP up with Hakone freepass. Good thing is that you do not need to squeeze with the crowd to enjoy the view and you may... More

We spent some time sailing on the lake and we enjoyed the couple of hours looking around the area. It's great for kids and people who like fake pirate ships.

Very colourful ship and the distance is just nice about 20 min. We enjoyed the ship ride. You can buy day pass and take the ship ride unlimited to another route.
