很美的一個地方。建議係温泉酒店過一晚(我地住The Lake View Toya Nonokaze Resort),早上5am起身望出窗, 湖水超静,而且很藍+日出風景,好靚!而且早上最容易望到羊蹄山! 很適合honeymoon或for couples慶祝。6月去可以看到煙花,一路浸房間内的温泉,一路看煙花!

The place is serene & we hv a lovely morning walk. We had wanted to camp there but was afraid can't take the cold. We could hv booked the cabins or chalets there & can catch the fireworks at night

Stopover at Lake Toya for a night when on the way to Hakodate. Reached in the evening and it was drizzling. The next day morning view was stunning with bright and clear weather. You might need some luck to capture a nice picture of the lake. During summer and autumn, there will be fireworks display at night. Worth to pay... More

A pretty caldera lake with islands in the middle. Take the ferry ride into the lake for a better view. It's kind of a scene, mostly Japanese tourists.

We walked around part of the lake and found an exotic beautiful little island. Be careful of the roads from sapporo to lake Toya, there're speeding cameras around.

The lake is tranquil and quite beautiful. Around the lake there are quite a few free public hand and foot hot spring. You will need to be very careful about planning your visit if you intend to watch the nightly fireworks on the lake. We happened to visit during off peak season and were grossly disappointed when we had to... More

This is a stunning location. The lake is surrounded by activities and the parks are filled with incredible art works. The food is amazing and the scenery breathtaking.

We can stroll along the way to view the spectacular Lake Toya. Do visit the free foot spa along the pathway.
