Lake Ashi (Ashinoko), Hakone-machi

4.1
#1 of 446 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.

  • A trip worth making. We had an enjoyable experience though it was cold. The sky was clear that day and we are blessed to have a clear view of Mount Fuji. Strongly recommend you to plan this trip.....  more »

  • A very beautiful lake, when visited the climate had changed from sunny to cloudy. The clouds descended from the mountains and the lake was covered with blanket of clouds. The dramatic change is climate didn't allow us to enjoy the scenic around the lake, but definitely it didn't spoil our visit. We enjoyed the fog and drizzle of rain while on the cruise. The travel time to cross the lake is less than 20 minutes.
