“Depends on the weather”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Though there are beautiful pictures from Lake Ashi, if you get there on a dull and rainy day the ride on the "Pirate Ship" is not too exciting.

“A Pleasant Way to View Lake Ashi”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

As part of our Hakone Loop Tour, we rode the "pirate ship" from Hakone-Machi to Togendai. Although the weather was hot and humid, the ship moves fast enough to keep you cool. We upgraded our tickets to first class which allowed us onto the front of the boat which was significantly less crowded and more comfortable that the rest of the ship, and I'd recommend buing the upgrade. We weren't able to see Mt. Fuji, but had nice views of the lake area including a number of Torii gates on the lake shore. If you are visiting Hakone, I would recommend this ride.

“Almost everyone Come to Hakone Is Here”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

It took us one hour and half to reach here from Tonosawa station, without any waiting time on line, in peck season, I wonder how much longer to get here,
if you have a free day pass, it's included, maybe it's the time, so not very crowded, with a little breeze, it was a wonder cruise, maybe about 20 minutes to reach the other side, no luck of seeing Mount Fuji, the pictures showing Mount Fuji were taken in January or February with a clear sky.
