Hakone Pirate Boat (Hakone Sightseeing Boat)

Hakone Pirate Boat (Hakone Sightseeing Boat)


The Hakone Sightseeing Cruise offers sightseeing boats that sail around Lake Ashinoko, a popular spot in Hakone. There are three boats: Royal II, Victory, and Queen Ashinoko, and passengers can board the cruise at any of the three ports along the edge of the lake. Those ports are Hakonemachi-ko, Motohakone-ko, or Togendai-ko. We recommend the cruise that leaves from Motohakone-ko, as you can view Mt. Fuji, a large torii gate, and Lake Ashinoko all at once. Passengers can enjoy majestic views on sunny days, when the contrast between the blue sky and the sparkling surface of the lake is very beautiful.

Travel tip

Purchase a Hakone Free Pass to cover the public transportation costs to Lake Ashi and purchase discounted tickets for the boat tour.
