Lake Ashi in Hakone (Ashi-no-ko,芦ノ湖)

Lake Hakone is not only famous for the numerous Onsen resorts in the vicinity but also for its ferry ships, which look like some kind of pirate vessel! The ferry takes you across lake Ashinoko linking Motohakone, Hakone and the ropeway at Togendai. Our hotel was very close to the Togendai cable car station and lake Hakone, which is also very popular among fishermen as we observed on that rainy day!

Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese.
