Still making our way to Hakone, we went for a boat cruise on Lake Ashi, passing the torii gate at the entrance to the Hakone Shrine shown here near the shore on the left. 

One of the truly iconic views of Mt. Fuji includes this gate, but Mt. Fuji was pretty much clouded over when we were there and most of us didn’t even know it was out there.

Anyway, I really liked this view, which includes the torii gate to the Hyoshi shrine in the background… and we had a terrific look at Mt. Fuji over several hours of our travels the next day.
