This is a beautiful lake with deep blue water that never freeze even in the coldest winter. Coming from a small country with hardly any vast nature scene, I really appreciate the seemingly serene sight this lake offers, not forgetting it is a volcanic crater lake.

Lake Toya a beautiful volcanic lake is definitely a place to visit if you enjoy a quiet place and enjoy taking picrures. There are fireworks every night so do not miss it.

If you're looking for a place to rest & relax, Lake Toya is for you. There are several recreational activities you can do...biking, paddle boats, & ferry rides. There's nightly fireworks from April to Sept. The fireworks starts @8:45 p.m and lasts 20 mins. You can go on a ferry 30 min before the firework starts for a closer view.... More

Lake Toya is famous for a volcanic caldera lake. Actually ko in Toyako means a lake in Japanese. The lake is nearly circular, 10km in diameter, never frozen! We can use a cruise ship to look around the lake.

Nice fireworks every night, but cold weather, really cold outside. The lake is very nice in the day. Beautiful lake scene.

If you prefer to have some peace and tranquility, then this is the place. A good escape out of the concrete jungle. Very quiet towns.

Lovely place to visit the hot spring. We took a boat to the middle island, amazing sights - the islands, the forest and the tiny musuem on the main Island.

Had short drive from the south to the north of the lake via the western lake shore route. Very scenic with almost no traffic. The park on the north is very serene.
