Located on the Island of Honshu, Lake Ashi, also known as Lake Ashinoko, is located inside of Japan's Hakone National Park. A crater lake with Mt. Fuji as its backdrop, it is a dazzling view on the water. It is considered sacred by the Japanese and has a Shinto shrine at its base.

Take a boat ride on the lake, and enjoy views of Mt. Komagatake and the lush greenery of the other surrounding mountains, or catch a spectacular view of Lake Ashi on one of the trails in Hakone National Park. One trail even leads from the summer palace of the former Imperial Family!

Or choose to soak up the natural healing powers of the local hot springs and stay at one of the relaxing traditional ryokans.

And if its amazing views you're looking for, take the Hakone Ropeway, an aerial tram, that passes above the lake and surrounding valleys across Hakone.

Practical Info

Lake Ashi is located in the Kanagawa Prefacture in Hakone on the Island of Honshu, which is 62 miles (100 kilometers) from Tokyo. Once there, you can hike a trail to sit at its banks or up a mountain and catch an impressive vista of the lake. Other popular ways to explore Lake Ashi are by riding on the lake in a boat or even a pirate ship.
