"Lake Toya" Toya-ko by sunnywong

Toya-ko Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 24 photos

Toyako Onsen is a touristy hot spring resort along the shore of Lake Toya, just at the foot of Mount Usu (Usuzan).

Several large luxury hotels stand right alongside the lake, offering rooms and hot spring baths with beautiful views of the lake. Even if you do not stay at one of the large hotels, you can use the baths of some of them during daytime against an admission fee of typically 500 to 1000 Yen.

In front of the hotels runs a pleasant promenade with foot baths (ashiyu) and daily fireworks in the evening from May through October. It is also the departure point for sightseeing boat cruises of the lake.

Toyako Onsen is the major transportation hub in the Lake Toya area with direct bus connections to Sapporo, JR Toya Station and other destinations
