  • 40 Reed-boat around the half of the Lake, and has good is. Don't forget cold, so cold at the moment the season quite windy out on the deck, enjoying the view. Has two routes, kojiri Hakone shrine area and the. We got towards the shrine, but even on weekdays fine were both traveling groups. You can use cruise discount tickets in the hotel we stayed, so ask at the front desk.

  • Appeared, and the morning rain had stopped. Until it was dark the surrounding landscape to be ornate. After starting elementary school students who had lined up quietly exactly cruise ship returning to the pier. Late fall, midweek ASHI-Lake as it began to move. You can admire views of fall foliage on the Lake may be in a Lake thick coffee. There are people who walk down the street in the equipment to explore the mountains. Autumn blossoms at their best now. The snow season is coming up there.

  • Our trip to Hakone include a short ferry ride across Lake Ashi. The high mountains and the deep valleys provided a perfect back drop to this beautiful and peaceful lake journey.
