Our hotel is very near lake toya, the autumn leaves makes the entire place so peaceful and it's so pleasant to stroll. It was windy and chilly that morning when we came. So dress warmly even it's autumn.

the lake is beautiful with a view of Mt Tosei on a clear day. The autumn leaves along the banks of the lake really beautify the scenery. depending on the weather, you will get to see fireworks at the lake which starts at 8.30pm. during our stay, we had to stay indoors to watch the fireworks because of the rain...

Lake Tōya is a volcanic caldera lake in Shikotsu-Toya National Park, Abuta District, Hokkaidō, Japan. It is a part of "Toya Caldera and Usu Volcano Global Geopark" which joins in Global Geoparks Network. We had our lunch at Toyako Manseikaku, and enjoy the refreshing view of the lake side. After that, we proceeded to Mt. Usu Volcano Geopark by taking the... More

Sadly much of Lake Toya is a ghost town remnant of hay day glory. But that leads to a greater focus on the natural beauty and splendor of this caldera. Breath taking vistas and crystal clear water. Strongly strongly recommend a rental car and go for a scenic drive around the lake. Dusk, noon, sunset, beautiful at every time. Skip... More

Hokkaido is for me the best of the Japan Island. You can visit romantic town Hakodate, young city Sapporo but the nicest is Toyi with lake Tója-ko. There are many volcanos as Usu-zan, Showa Shinzan and next and you can walk to the crater Ginnuma Daikakou and to admire this charming place. And when you don´t want to walk you... More

Stayed here three days in August 2014. Lake is very beautiful, with mountains around it. Nearby Mt. Tosei looks like a mini-Fuji. Lakeshore promenade stretches along the hotel district and ends in a beautiful park. Many sculptures along the walk. At one point there is a warm foot onsen to rest your weary feet. (Bring a towel.) Swan pedal boats... More

We can see the lake from our room. We walked and took some photos for souvenir. Toward the end there is foot onsen. Unfortunately I was wearing long pants otherwise I could have had a relaxing dip after walking a lot. We also ride their duck boat where we pedalled by ourselves. It can be wavy if a speedboat is...

We walked along the southern part of the lake, enjoyed the view, surprised by a free feet only onsen, along the boardwalk. You can elect to talk a boat tour or other "tourist trap" that are abundant. While Lake shikotsu was nice, we found lake Toya's views more inspiring.
