This trip includes about 20 minutes' cruising on the Lake Kawaguchiko. The scenery includes the mountains, the lake and the surrounding town. You can purchase a combined ticket that included this boat, the area shuttle bus and the ropeway.

The boat cruise last 20 minutes. It just take you out in the lake and return. You get a nice view of Mount Fuji from the lake. As we know, seeing Mount Fuji is very weather dependent.

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.

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.
