Bus from Mishima to Lake Ashi 2012/6/25 02:34
Hi,

I'm interested in travelling from my hotel in Numazu to Lake Ashi. I found out that the fastest route is by using the Tokai bus of which i found a schedule. Unfortunately i cannot translate it because it's not plain text. I hope someone can help me with timetables and prices.

I'd like to know which bus to take from Mishima station on saturday from 21:00 to Lake Ashi, and a return time preferrably close to 23:00. I'm asking this because i'm interested in photographing the sunset on lake ashi. I hope late august the sun sets late on lake ashi (please correct me if it's not the case).

Thanks in advance,

Marcus Braun

The buses between Mishima and Hakone do not operate that late! The last bus from Mishima is at 16:15 (17:15 on weekends outside winter). In the opposite direction, the last bus leaves Hakone-machi at 16:54 (17:54).

Buses between Odawara and Lake Ashi run until around 9pm.

Sunset, by the way, is around 19:00 in mid June and around 16:30 in mid December.

Hi Uji,

Thanks for your answer. I'm afraid i will have to visit lake Ashi the next day when i'm heading to tokyo. I only have to find a solution for my big suitcases to drop off somewhere. (Don't think it's a good idea strolling around the lake with 2 large suitcases searching for a perfect spot to take a picture of the lake with fujisan in the background). I was hoping to do a sunset or sunrise image from the lake but i'm afraid that's no option coming from Numazu that late.

Regards,

Marcus

Any other suggestions of photographing Mt. fuji around Numazu in the afternoon would be most welcome, since i won't be able to take a bus to Lake Ashi that late.

Unfortunately i only have one night before heading to Tokyo and visiting the Shiraito-no-taki falls is also high on my list. Since i am coming from Kyoto that day, arriving in Numazu isn't possible at very early hours.

Regards,

Marcus
