Lake Ashi and Mt. Fuji Tour

One of the most delightful ways to see Hakone is on a circular route traveling by mountain railway, cable car, a suspended ropeway and a boat that cruises across Lake Ashi. There are many things to do en route, including hiking, relaxing in hot springs, and exploring museums like the Hakone Open-Air Museum with its gardens, 400-some sculptures and one of the world’s largest Picasso collections.

Mt. Fuji, a 12,355-foot cone of almost perfect symmetry, is Japan's tallest and most sacred mountain. It's officially open for climbing in July and August, but the best views are from scenic Hakone.
