Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kanto / Kanagawa Prefecture / Ashigarashimo-gun / Hakone-machi / Lake Ashi (Ashinoko)
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 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 travel time to cross the lake is less than 20 minutes.
