Along with the maintenance of the nature of Hakone's, kept in a state unchanged since ancient times, the Lake Ashinoko Skyline is under constant road management in order to ensure the sustained safety of visitors. We recommend this road for a drive with exquisite scenic views of Lake Ashinoko in the east and Mt. Fuji in the west.
