Must see · Water Body · Nature / Park
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.

  • Must visit late in Hakone/ Odawara. Set in a peaceful area of Japan, surrounded by local eatery and ice-cream parlors.  more »
  • As part of our tour, after Mount Fuji there was a boat trip across Lake Ashi to get to the rope way (cable car). Beautiful peaceful lake surrounded by mountains and a chance to get a different view...  more »

  • Great scenery, cool weather
  • Nice, enjoy the tranquility
  • Cruise was fun!
  • A very beautiful lake, when visited the climate had changed from sunny to cloudy. The clouds descended from the mountains and the lake was covered with blanket of clouds. The dramatic change is climate didn't allow us to enjoy the scenic around the lake, but definitely it didn't spoil our visit. We enjoyed the fog and drizzle of rain while on the cruise. The travel time to cross the lake is less than 20 minutes.
  • Think of a beautiful and peaceful place!! Wonderful spot for being in touch with nature and also, to have a little trip onboard of a charming ship!! Take some time for visiting the local souvenir stores!
