Short but fun

A fun ride on the Pirate ship. The kids loved it, the views were absolutely gorgeous, and the ride was smooth and comfortable. Free using Hakone Free Pass.

When we go for the ride it was super sunny, so we could see clearly the beautiful view of the lake and mountain. Highly recommended if you have time!

Nice 45 min trip with very pleasant scenery and some views of Fuji. Makes a good day combined with the ropeway

The winter weather was very kind and we enjoyed a calm, beautiful ride in the ship. With plenty of vantage points to see the impressive scenery, including Mt. Fuji, the boat is very popular. Actually there are about four of these and they ply their routes to and fro across Lake Ashi. Refreshments are available.

Although cramped on that Sunday, the short ride was refreshing with the breeze taking off the cramped queues earlier. The view of Mt Fuji was spectacular, if you are lucky to spy it.

I like it the boat trip. It takes around 15 minutes, but it is very nice mainly if you are lucky and able to see the Mt. Fuji.

Interesting and fun mode of transport to bring you across the lake. It's about 35mins long for a trip. Good views of Mt Fuji on a clear day. A must-do! If you've a freepass, do a return trip for the fun of it!

Cool way to ride across lake Ashi. Value for money with Hakone pass. Can be rather crowded at times. If u wanna get seats, try to go early and be at the dock to wait for the boat.

The ship sails from one end of Lake Ashi to the other end, with a stop on the way. It is a large ship, and probably because of that, the ship does not cruise close to shore. At a distance, we cannot see clearly the coastline features nor the lovely scenery. With so many tourists on board, looking for their... More
