Nice view

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

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.

This lake is a caldera. Unfortunately the clouds covered Mt. Yoteizan at our visit, but you should be able to see Mt. Yoteizan clearly over the lake on sunny days. This is where the 34th G7 Summit is held In 2008. The actual venue was the Windsor Hotel Toya, which looks down Lake Toyako from a mountain top.

Beautiful and serene, Lake Toya a nice quiet place with many views to enjoy of Nakajima Island located in the middle. There is a road that takes you around the entire lake and has many different stop points. Great picturesque scenery.

Lake Toya is a beautiful site for a day trip in the summer. Visitors will find roadside stops with observation decks or towns that border the lake with lots of scenic parks. There's also the Uzusan Ropeway if you want to view the lake from up high. It's a great area to explore and stop where you want or stop... More

Pristine blue waters in summer with jaw-dripping views all-day as the sun & clouds change angles. The fireworks in summer are really WOW... we were lucky to see the 100th anniversary special "O-dama" fireworks.. Driving around the lakeshore is calming as you soak in the views & enjoy the gentle breeze. Boating of various types is also available !!

Lake Toya is a very beautiful place. You can have a bicycle ride around the lake which is about 35km and enjoy the scenery.

The scenery of the Lake is nice. We manage to wake up as early as 3:30am to wait for the fantastic sun rise

Enjoyed lake Toya with its beautiful surroundings flanked by the majestic Uzusan in the south and the majestic Mt Yotei further north. Enjoyed a drive round the lake (about 40 km) soaking in the various lakeside scenic spots along the way. The evening Fireworks (nightly during summer) are an added bonus but do remember to book a hotel that is... More
