Other views on and from the edge of Lake Ashi include the surrounding mountains and the floating torii of Hakone Shrine. Lake Ashi (芦ノ湖 Ashino-ko), often referred to as Hakone Lake, but formally known as Ashinoko Lake. Lake Ashi is a crater lake that lies along the southwestern wall of the caldera of Mount Hakone, a complex volcano.

      First off, the pirate ship is something straight of a movie. It’s really cool to see sailing on the water and to ride. Lake Ashi offers some truly amazing sights outside of the pirate ship too. The shrine at sunset attracts a lot of people, because the colors of the setting sun against the shrine’s torii gate is indescribable. Also, it’s a very relaxing location. Can’t go wrong here.
