  • Nice resort and hiking area. Beautiful lake with mountain Fuji view from cruise boat. “Pirates” boats are usually crowded, so take regular one. It’s easy to take photos of “Pirates” from it.😀

  • Awesome little trip. Great scenery and the boat looks awesome. Wish there were more seats, but that can't be helped for the size of the boat while ensuring passengers remain comfortable. There is a VIP area that can be accessed for a higher price, but for the length of the trip I wouldn't say it would be worth-it.

  • Its a nice beautiful, picturesque lake near Hakone. Its a must visit place. The journey with the old design boats and the surrounding view of mountains makes an amazing journey. There is also a ropeway and one can observe the beautiful view of Mt. Fuji while traveling through it. There are many things to do here.

  • It is a beautiful place with a great view of the lake on one side and sometimes when it is clear and not cloudy you would get a really good view of Mt.Fuji. There are good restaurants around the station too. The cruise from here is quite boring but the view from it is mind blowing. During spring you can witness Cherry blossom too. It’s a wonderful place for nature lovers.

  • Take the sight seeing cruise if you’re here in Hakone. If there is clear sky, u can get the view of Mount Fuji. Very beautiful & clear lake.
