Attraction > Scenic Ride
Hakone Sightseeing Cruise is a sightseeing cruise across Lake Ashi in Hakone Japan. There are currently 3 routes that cross the lake. The longest route takes approximately 30 min. The "Key" reason most people take the cruise is to get a good look or "photo" of Mt. Fuji in the background and or the Autumn colors in the fall. The ships themselves are decorated as old time Pirate ships (just "decorated" only... they are modern ships). On weekends and during Japanese holidays the ships can get quite packed... and possibly hard to find a good position (unless you quickly get a spot when you get on). The Hakone Sightseeing Cruise serves the 3 ports of Togendai-ko, Hakonemachi-ko, and Motohakone-ko on Lake Ashi.
