Hakone Pirate Ships are one of Hakone's many tourist attractions. The Hakone Pirate Ships ferry people across Lake Ashi.

The Hakone Pirate Ships are sightseeing cruise ships, which are decorated as replicas of pirate ships. The Hakone Pirate Ships are a famous sight on Lake Ashi and a Hakone icon. The Hakone Pirate Ships are the main form of transport between the Hakone Ropeway Station at  Togendai and the two townships of Motohakone-ko and Hakone-machi. From the deck of the Hakone Pirate Ships you can enjoy the scenery Lake Ashi including the vermillion shrine gate of Hakone Shrine.
