This is our second time visiting the lake during our trip to Hakone. Pretty and unique pirate boats , Japanese land mark Mt Fuji at the background. Must visit place if you are around in Hakone. If you have hakone pass - you can use...More
A tourist trap unfortunately. Not much to see and if you have been on boats and lakes before, this would be quite underwhelming. If you do it from owakudani then mt fuji is behind you at the very end and is far away so it's...More
Not a very big lake. Went on the pirate ship. Weather was pretty cold though the sun was out. To be honest, nothing much to see except you can see Mount Fuji on one part of the cruise. If you continue with the next leg,...More

In addition, the Hakone Free Pass is around 4,000 JPY, that includes an unlimited pass to tozan train, hakone ropeway, hakone cable car, lake ashi cruise, odakyu buses, etc. If you are planning to do only 3 activities half day is enough and i don’t think purchasing Hakone Free pass would be practical. Just bear in mind too that the first train from Shinjuku Tokyo to Hakone departs around 7 am and reach at around 9 am. I am not sure though the schedule of Romance Car, you can inquire about all these in advance at Odakyu Customer Service Center in Shinjuku Station. They have a number but I no longer have it.
Please note as well that each areas are quite far from each other, it’s a bit exhausting to do all for a half day based on my experience. Check too if there is a direct bus to Kawaguchiko as I believe you will have to take a bus to Gotemba and from there, there should be a bus to Kawaguchiko.
What we did a few months ago is the other way around, we’ve started from Mount Fuji area first as there is an early bus from Shinjuku that departs at 6 am (prior booking is required) — it is advisable to check where the bus station is prior to avoid missing it.
We’ve allocated 2 days for this trip as the travel time is really long and there were lots of places worth seeing. Recommended number of days for Hakone and Fuji is 3 days and buying yhe Fuji Hakone Pass would be practical. Please do let me know if you have any other questions. I hope this help.
