“Plan your time wisely”
Reviewed December 23, 2011

I enjoyed the cruise immensely. But just a word of caution, do take note of the timing of the last ship. You wouldn't want to be trapped, especially during winter. It is best if you take the cruise in the earlier part of the day, then move on to other sights you have in mind.

Reviewed November 11, 2011

Although not spectacular, it was a nice, quiet cruise around the lake. Very peaceful.

“it's a ship.”
Reviewed October 30, 2011

nothing special. but if you want to complete the route, you need to get on it. the pirate like ship looks excited for kids (i think). other than that, it's a ship.

“A great way for a day-out in Hakone”
Reviewed August 18, 2011

Standing on the deck with cool winds blowing on my face, I felt so refreshed. We're crossing Lake Ashi in one of the experiences we will never forget for the rest of our lives.

Take note:

1) You have to pay extra money to have your pic taken with the man dressed up as a pirate captain.

2) Check to which ports the ships will sail on the day; they sometimes forego one of the ports, perhaps depends on the weather.

3) Watch for the red partially submerged torii near the lake shore!

4) If you like Hello Kitty, the souvenir shop of the ship sells special Hello Kitty Hakone pirate ship edition.

5) A great way to continue your journey is using the ropeway. Arrange your journey so that you can ride the ship and the ropeway, and also the railway.
