Nothing can beat the view from the deck on a sunny day. My favorite scenery is Mount Fuji. I never get tired of seeing the stunning beauty of Mount Fuji in front while we pass by the vermillion torii gate in the first 3 to 5 minutes after departing Motohakone-ko. Stay out on the deck to catch this gorgeous view, then have fun exploring the ship or relaxing with a hot coffee.

Victory is modeled after old British battleships and reproduces the atmosphere of the vessels of that period, down to the interior decorations and the cannons on the deck. From the deck and the large cabin windows you will be able to enjoy great views of Lake Ashi and Mt. Fuji.
Additionally, the first class cabin allows you to enjoy cruising in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.

The enduring beauty of Lake Ashi

I grew up in Hakone and have enjoyed the scenery of Lake Ashi and Mount Fuji since I was a kid. I never get tired of looking at the unchanged landscape from Motohakone-ko.
If you cross Lake Ashi every day, every once in a while you get to see the rare sight of a snake or a deer swimming the lake in search of food. The natural landscape shows a different face each season, each with its own beauty to enjoy.

Enjoy watching other cruise ships pass by
