My wife and I took a boat cruise on the lake to enjoy the beautiful scenery and to get to the Mount Komagatake Ropeway Tram to go up the hill for more scenery.

This lake is surrounded by lush green mountains We took a cruise for around 40 minutes that was simply beautiful. Unfortunately it was cloudy and we just could imagine the pristine views this lake would offer in sunshine ,Not to be missed.

The weather wasn’t good when we visited this area, but I can image it to be stunning on a sunny day. The novelty pirate ferry trips on the lake are great for kids.

During a recent visit to Japan, we took a boat ride on Lake Ashi as part of a tour. The lake was lovely and the views quite pleasant even though cloud shrouded Mount Fuji. What was hard to understand was the boat theme: 17th century...More

It's in fact a ferry decorated like a pirate boat that goes round different ports of the lake in one direction.
