The boat was very clean and pretty ! You could see the view of outside everywhere and they explained you little things about the river, and places around.

We took the cruise late in the afternoon on a cloudy day, and so had no chance of seeing Mount Fuji. However, the journey was enjoyable anyway. The lake is so high up in the mountains that we were able to see clouds reaching down...More

The Hakone Sightseeing Cruise in lake Ashi runs between Moto-Hakone Port, Hakone-machi Port and Togendai Port. You can enjoy the beautiful landscape and also Mt Fuji.

The pirate ships looked very impressive! The views of Mount Ashi and the Mountains were good. We spent about $50 AUD each for the Tozan Railway, cable car, ropeway and sightseeing cruise which we thought was very reasonable. This was an enjoyable journey!

A cramped ship in the style of a pirate galleon. It is part of the transport network around Hakone but it’s not a highlight in its own right. Reasonable views at best.

Nice trip to add into the rope way and bus trip. Novelty pirate ship which the children seem to enjoy. The views around the lake are good and the sail gave a good perspective.

Cruise is about 30 minutes long. Water not crowded so you can see sights on shore. Ship is crowded and middle seats are no good for picture taking. To better see and take pictures stand by a door or window.

I have only been to Motohakone - a good selection of shops and a great restaurant/cafe that overlooks the lake. The boat usually stops at both - so you can do both if you have the time.
