Lake Ashi (Ashinoko), Hakone-machi

4.1
#1 of 393 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.

  • The Lake is not in and of itself is nothing special. But, if you're in these parts, pass on the ship is very relaxing. If you are lucky, you will see Fujiyama!

  • Pirate ships and pleasure boats run regularly. From togendai from Hakone port less than 30 minutes a day was so windy out on the deck and enjoy the scenery. You see Mt. Fuji beautiful sunny ain't hardly empty. GW was packed India gate group accounted for the majority, didn't want to come to have been foreign.

  • Best to arrive early and enjoy this amazing peaceful serenity before the tourist invasion. First boat leaves at 10am from togendai pier If you're lucky enough with clear skies, you'll be able to see Mount Fuji! There are a few Tori gates, so take your time as they are all within walking distance
  • This is a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains in Hakone area. The pirate ship ride enables you to see the entire lake.
  • The lake is very peaceful to look at and the ride at the ropeway is enjoyable. Plus you can see Mt Fuji here on a clear day.
  • Great little retreat area. Reminds me a bit of Banff Canada.
  • We have just spent three days based here. Fantastic base and loved it out of season as we had the view of Mt Fuji to ourselves
