Hi there, it’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to share our experience of so-called pirate ship ride on Lake Ashi in Hakone. It’s officially called Hakone Sightseeing Cruise. We took a ropeway down to Lake Ashi from Owakudani.
The ride is roughly for 30 minutes and it has come to an end. You could get a bus down towards Hakone Yumoto from here. But you could stay a bit longer and visit Hakone Sekisho as well! It’s just around the corner.
How was it? If ever you visit Hakone, get the chance to ride this pirate ship and enjoy the scenery of Lake Asahi.
Fresh Mentaiko is available at a reasonable price. It’d be nice for souvenir. Meintaiko is available at every supermarket in Japan but this one especially tastes great.
Though it was a quick tour, there are many places to visit around this area such as MITSUI OUTLET PARK MARINE PIA KOBE (most of places are for shopping). Perhaps it would nice to stop at this Mentai Park Kobe Sanda on the way.
