What a beautiful and scenic location. The lake is surrounded with hotels, onsens and restaurant / cafes. The area is very quiet and peaceful, which is sometimes disturbed by the occasional bus load of tourists. And it's a place to go to relax and take in the sights, and not for shopping.

I was at lake Toya last year summer and stayed at the Daiwa Ryokan Annex. The hotel over look lake Toya or I can say most hotel in Lake Toya would overlook the lake. Lake Toya is a small quite and beautiful town. Although there is nothing much to do, you can take a cruise around the lake in the... More

So charming. I was attracted by a photo of a lady in an onsen just besides the lake in snowy winter but then I found some reviews about the hotel that it actually serves a number of tour groups and had become noisy and busy, however, the lake itself was terrific. You can also ride a boat to the island... More

For Toya Lake, you can choose for cruise and sightseeing, it's around 1 hour for cruise. Normally the boat will stop 1 point at the island in the middle of Toya Lake. But if you come to the Winter season like me, it can't go up or see anything. So in my opinion, this program is not interesting in the... More

It was a quiet, beautiful place. The weather is freezing cold but yet it is relaxing looking at the lake. Didnt take any boat ride but just walk along the pavement as our hotel was less than 5 min walk to the lake.

Lake Toyako has crystal clear water with interesting art sculptors around the lake. It's very calm and peaceful. If you plan on trekking avoid from November to April. Visit supersillytraveller.com for more information

While I know it's a very touristy thing to do, I would suggest family with little children to take the ferry that goes to the island of Nakajima in the middle of the lake. It doesn't do too much, it just sorts of meander around the island vicinity and allow you to take pictures and such. We had a young... More

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...
