Lake Ashi, Hakone Reviews

  • Highly recommend for short trip from Tokyo. You can take special express train named Odakyu-romance-car from Shinjuku station. Your have to get off train at Hakone-yumoto station.It’s takes about 90 minutes to get there and it cost you 2000yen for one-way. As you can read and get more information about Hakone on the internet, we have lots of historical things here. Also you can enjoy Onsen( hot spring, Japanese traditional spa ) too. Have good experiences and enjoy it! Please don’t forget to subscribe my advice! Thank you !

  • The weather during spring in early April is like flip flop. One day rain, one day sunshine . We were lucky to see the beautiful Lake Ashi on the sunny day but yet it's very cold especially wind chill on the cruise ride . We managed to see partial Mt. Fuji !

  • A tranquil and peaceful volcanic lake located at the scenic Hakone region which is famous for the hot spring resorts. Get away from the hectic pace of Tokyo here.

  • Very nice lake, you can get a ticket to go to the mountain and the ship together.

  • Wonderfull view. Stunning. Beautiful. Must visit in hakone
