Lake Ashi (Ashinoko), Hakone-machi

4.1
#1 of 391 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 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 !
  • 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
  • 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.
  • Took a short cruise to the Ropeway terminal. Beautiful calm lake with mountain view on both sides.
