One for Emka. Not much of a view of Mount Fuji from the lake shore here, but if you climb higher up behind the town of Moto Hakone, or get a cablecar higher up, then you get a much better view. I would have liked to have had the time to do these lookouts too, as well as Owakundani.
This is of course one of the pirate boats on Lake Ashi, a caldera lake formed after the Hakone volcano last exploded 3,000 years ago.

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Superbe prise de vue de ce trois mâts glissant majestueusement sur le lac.
De plus, avoir su conjuguer ce magnifique bateau et la montagne neigeuse est un bel exploit !

A nice presentation of this pirate boat with nice details and attractive colors. I like that subtle reflection in the water. The mountain with snowy peaks make a nice background with good color contrast.

An unsual ship here (tourist design?) but it is the more subdued background that is the real appeal.

in this setting this galleon looks so impressive and appealing. Mt Fuji looks so wonderful and I really like this composition. A striking, original and attractive image.
Have a good day - Brian.

Il est magnifique ce bateau. Ses couleurs ors brillent sous une très belle luminosité et il pointe vers la belle montagne enneigée à l'horizon.

Best regards Robert.

The distance between the boat and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the pirate boat. The afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

The boat is not really authentic :) but it is very spectacular. Balanced composition. The depth is remarkable. The light, colors and sharpness are excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day

immagine bellissima con questo splendido galeone collocato in perfetta posizione sulla scena. Mi piace il modo in cui esce fuori dalla scena, quasi fosse in 3D.
Davvero eccellente la qualità dell'immagine.
Un caro saluto

what a beautiful boat, and sailing in a wonderful landscape.I love the perfect snowy cone of the volcano.Magnificent!
berek (49742) 2012-05-03 20:34
A ship is very interesting. light and sharpness are very good. I liked the most snowy mountains in the background.
danos (96772) 2012-05-03 23:11
great the snapshot of the pirate boat to take a stroll in the caldera lake enjoying the tourists of the place.The everlasting snowy peaks of the famous Fuji Mt. makes the image even more effective and unique.
I like the placement if the boat in the frame as the excellent light and colour management of the image.

Une étrange et étonnante association entre ce bateau pirate et ce volcan au sommet enneigé. Une vraie scène de film d'aventures!
delpeoples (57278) 2012-05-04 16:02
Oh yes, I wondered if that was Mt Fuji in the BG. And we see the Disney ship again, beautifully detailed and well-positioned. The colours contrast beautifully against the cooler tones of the sea and bg. Nice work, jeez you really have done some travelling. I'm sure Malgo will love this photo.

Hi Chris, I almost missed the dedication. Thank you very much!! Nice view of the mount Fuji, even if it is just a small part of it. I spent two days in Hakone area, choosing the places with a best views, I was also on Owakudani, but what are the places worth when there is a fog? It was important as a symbol, I have seen a lot of beautiful volcanos, like
Funny ship. Mine was more kitchy.
serp2000 (43800) 2015-03-19 11:23
Tomorrow morning I am beginning my tw-weeks trip to Japan. I also would visit this place. I can't to see your (and Malgo's) wonderful photos ... I want to see this country by my eyes ;)
Excellent capture of the old vessel with the Fuji on the background. Well done!

Japanees style Pirate-boat, cruising the crater-lake for tourists who widh to see mount Fuji from yet another perspective.
By itself, the perfect cone of Fuji is attractive from any POV. Of course, climbing higher - the more one can see it.
Fine shot, inspite some winter mist, something a tourist can't make a choice of.
