SpotLake Ashi

A twenty-minute bus ride from Hatajuku will deliver you to Motohakone, a town that sits on the edge of Lake Ashi from where you can get a dynamic view of Fuji and the surrounding mountains. The lake reflects the blue sky above and strange as it may sound, there are old world European galleon ships, and a 19th century American river steam ship acting as ferries, although there is also a nice looking cruiser type as well. Riding lakeside will give you a chance for different scenery as you cruise along the smooth open water. A ride from Motohakone to Hakonemachi, or vise versa will take approximately 10 minutes. A ride from either Motohakone or Hakonemachi to Togendai will take about 30 minutes. From Motohakone, you can walk north along the lake (toward Mt. Fuji) to reach Hakone Shrine, and see such sights as the ancient Cedar Path.
