This scenic lake, also known as Lake Ashi, is major tourist attraction in Hakone. The lake can be crossed on sighseeing boats, including recreations of pirate ships that look a little out of place. The view from the boats and from the shores of the lake are spectacular, especially when the include Hakone Jinja and Mount Fuji, which is visible on clear days.
Combined with the other attractions of Hakone, this makes a good day trip but is better enjoyed over a few days.
