The Pirate ship - Hakone
After an amazing sleep, with the lake breeze and the crickets chirping, we had a tasty buffet breakfast which made up for the lack of a meal the night before. We fuelled up, checked out and then headed to the Pirate Ship - yes, they have reproductions of what can only be described as galleons that charge backwards and forwards across lake Ashi, ferrying hundreds of tourists on the Hakone loop. We had to do it at least once and it was included in our special discount pass, so we joined the masses and sailed serenely up the lake, taking in the stunning view and soaking up the gorgeous sunshine.
