    Help!! Pirates!!

    What is doing that big and old ship in that lake in the middle of the forest?
    It´s a tourist attraction, you can take it and enjoy a nice tour through the lake.
    In a clear day it´s possible to see the Fuji-San (Fuji Mt.)

    Sight seeing ship

    You can take one of these pirate ship in Lake Ashi. I think a reproduction of some sort of historic Japanese wooden boat would be more appropriate in this lake. Of course, it’s just me opinion.

    Walk up to the sulphurous vapor erupting area in Owakudani. Make sure you look for Mt. Fuji at a distance on the way down as I almost missed it.

    Fujiya Hotel in Gora. It's the first western hotel in the area and the architecture is beautiful. John Lennon and Yoko Ono had stayed here in the 80's.

    You can take a "ropeway" or cable car up the mountain to a rather smelly sulphur spring. Japanese people seem to enjoy eating eggs that have been cooked in the spring.
