The Hakone Sightseeing Ship finally arrived I think every 15 or 20 minutes I am not really sure, the ship depart.
Don't lost your Hakone Freepass their is always a guard/employee at the gate all the time to check your pass before boarding the ship.
This area I remember you have to wait for a departing Hakone sightseeing ship to Lake Ashi and you can buy Hakone souveniers, their a restaurants, a small store that you can buy snack and vending machine for something to drink.
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.)
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.
Try these black eggs. There is a sign indicated if you eat one egg, it will extend your life by seven years........ and I ate two eggs, you do the math.
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.
this place is amazing, with sulfuric fumes, boiling ponds, crows and skeleton tree everywhere. You can also test eggs cooked in the vulcanic waters
