We came here at the start of winter. We did the Lake cruise and we enjoyed the experience of birds flying over us as the ship toured around the center of the lake. The cool, biting breeze and the snow-capped mountains delighted the nature-lover in me!

While we went in winter, the scenery around Lake Toya is spectacular!!!!! There are quite a few viewing areas to see this Lake from different angles, so a Car is a must!!!!!

A smaller lake than lake shikotsu. Nicer in a way as it is smaller plus there are 4 islands in the middle. Theres a boat you can go on to get to the islands. Not much around. Boring walk along the shores but the drive around the lake especially up in the hills has nice views. The views from up... More

We stayed at Lake Toya for 2 nights which was just perfect. The promenade along the lake is a good starting point for a leisurely morning walk to admire and enjoy the serene lake without the crowd. Moreover, it is also along the way to the leisure boat pier. The1 hour leisure boat cruise is a must if you have... More

I spent one night a Lake Toya and it was a nice, relaxing stay. There's not much to do but it's the place where you pause and look at the breathtaking view of the lake. We spent an hour walking along the walkway by the lake and soaked our feet in the foot onsen while looking at the view. There... More

The view of the lake really depends on the weather. We stayed at Kohantei in order to have a lake view. On the first day it was covered with fog due to the cold weather too. The second day was completely different, with clear view. The serenity of the lake is worth a visit.

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!

This caldera lake showcases most of the attributes of top Japanese tourist destinations. The natural environment is stunning with access around the lake shore in the vicinity of the onsen paved and level. There are a range of shops in the town so it is possible to pop into the Family Mart and grab some sandwiches for a picnic lunch... More

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
