Lake Ashi pirate ship

Lake Ashi pirate ship

Many dream of seeing the snow capped peak of Mt Fuji. However, most don't expect this magical moment to be aboard a replica pirate ship!

Just one of the many bizarre and surreal but utterly fantastic curve balls that Japan throws at you, the Lake Ashi pirate ships certainly make viewing Mount Fuji all the more memorable. However, Mount Fuji is very shy and if she happens to be hiding behind the cloud line, the ornate craftsmanship, life size pirate figurines and kitsch pirate paraphernalia provide some entertaining photo opportunities as a little consolation!
