Nice scenery around the lake

Very scenic lake. We took a cruise to the island and return. At night around 8:45PM there is fireworks. Nice to walk along the shore

Toya lake is a marvel of nature and demands you to stop and take it all in. Beautiful scenery and very apt for active groups and families. In summer people were cycling, canoeing, running, etc. We also went for a swim, but didn't see anyone else get in the lake!!! Recommended.

Great place for a day trip especially if you have kids. Bicycle ride along the lake is about 36.5km. Appears to be easier if you go anti-clockwise otherwise there's more uphill! Pleasant and peaceful.

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.

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.
