Lake Ashi (Ashinoko), Hakone-machi

4.1
#1 of 447 in Nature in Kanto
Filling an ancient volcanic crater, Lake Ashi (Ashinoko) lures visitors with a selection of historic sites, geothermal vents, and striking views of Mt. Fuji. Pay a visit to this 3,000-year old lake to explore densely forested hillsides dotted with villages and the occasional waterfront spa. Go for a hike on the trails of the surrounding national park or tread the path of the shoguns on the 400-year old road winding its way through thick vegetation. Alternatively, try to catch a view of snow-capped Mt. Fuji by going on a sightseeing boat tour.

  • We really enjoyed our cruise on this western war ship something quite unique. We even passed the hotel we stayed at the previous night The Prince Hakone Ashinoko. We were so lucky to have a great view...  more »
  • We saw the lake close up by taking the cruise ship across all three legs of the lake. Its a very peaceful place with great views of the shrine and of course Mt Fuji  more »

  • 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.
