    Mount Fuji

    by bonio Written Mar 19, 2003

    At fith station, as far as the bus takes you, there are a few restaurants and souvenir shops as well as several easy walking trails. On the mountain itself it's not easy to take a decent photo (not for my limited ability anyway!), best shots seem to be from some distance away!. This is a monument to the first people to climb the mountain with a cold guy in a silly shirt!

    Lake Ashi (Ashi-no-ko)

    Lake Ashi, 20km in circumference, is a slender lake formed in the Hakone caldera some 400 thousand years ago. The inverted reflection of Mt.

    Hakone Sightseeing Ship

    by sunnywong Written Feb 25, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hakone Sightseeing Ship are sailing in Lake Ashi between Togendai, Hakonemachi and Moto-Hakone. The fleet has three ships and both are Pirate Boats. On "the Pirate Boats in the wonderland", you will have wonderful scenes of Lake Ashi, like a virgin forest, hotels lined and a red torii or a gateway at the entrance to Hakone Shrine along the lake side.

    In the fall of 1996, "Frontier", the side-wheeler in the Mississippi, has made its debut on the line, which is quite different from the three pirate boats. Enjoy cruising in these boats.

    Mount Fuji Park

    by Sharrie Written Sep 16, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Walking around Mount Fuji Park gives one a feeling of serenity. It's not crowded during the Winter months & the air is so fresh! Incredibly fresh! I mean, have you really experienced just breathing in the air & consciously feeling it fill your whole being during Winter? Just feel & not think of anything else but the air... I don't mean at places like the East Coast in US where it's freezingly cold, but in places like Vancouver, Tokyo, San Francisco, where temperature are above freezing point. It's a great feeling & I feel blessed. Really blessed to be among the rich... not in monetary terms, but in nature & consciousness. We have so much in this world, all that can be enjoyed without accumulating fervently at the stores & owning every single item we come across. The cool breeze, the sunlight, the snow, the rocks, the colorful petals... all there for just for you to absorb into your consciousness & life.

    Mount Fuji.

    by Sharrie Written Sep 16, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Can you see the mountain behind me? Yeah, that's the awesome Mount Fuji! It's very rare that one can see it clearly from afar. Most of the time, people don't get to see it in person. It's always captured on postcards but to see it with your own eyes is another matter altogether. The Japanese considered it good luck to be able to see Mount Fuji at least once in their lifetime. It's a little like how the Chinese feel about visiting the Great Wall of China.

    Be thankful with what life has to offer...
    Every place you go to, every person you meet, every experience is the laying of foundation to your future.

    As Martha Washington puts it:
    'You can't invent events. They just happen. But you have to be prepared to deal with them when they happen.'

    Lake Kawaguchi (Kawaguchiko) is the most easily accessible of the five lakes. We spent 2 hours walking leisurely around the lake.
