It actually exceeded my expectation as I am not a fan of 'cruise' type of tours. This one was nice as though it lasted for only 20 min, the boat was in a route that gave you different angles of the lake area and best...More

You can buy combination ticket of ropeway and boat ride and bus ride at kawaguchiko station. The boat leaves every 40 mins and take around 20 mins. Nice to see Mount Fuji from the boat. Though it can be really crowded.

The cruise across Kawaguchi-ko is really beautiful. We got the first boat of the day at 9am and only had to share with five other people. We had plenty of room to walk around the top deck and see Fuji consistently on the whole cruise....More

Had an awesome time enjoying the calm of the lake while being able to view Mount Fuji in such a different perspective. I didn't think I'd get to still enjoy Mount Fuji while on the boat since it's seen all over while we're there, but...More

We took the boat as part of a whole tour. But the boat ride itself wasn't that expensive. It wasn't a speed boat but more like a small ferry.

We booked thru TripAdvisor but due to bad weather the boat at Hakone was not available. Therefore the pleasure boat at lake Kawaguchi was free for us.
