Beautiful Lake Toya

Breathtaking views and a pleasant drive around the lake. Plenty of places to stop along the way. I suggest stopping at Sobetsu-Cho for the waterfall and also visit the Windsor Hotel Resort. Cherry blossoms were in bloom as well.

Amazing view

We decided to stop at Toya during our trip from Sapporo to Hakodate. Toya is around 2 hours from Sapporo. From Toya Station, we took the bus to Lake Toya, you can purchased the return bus ticket inside the train station. We got off at the Lake Toya Tourism Centre, and the lake is just in front of the building, it is very beautiful blue lake, it was snowing so hard when we arrived. excellent photo spot!!!

Beautiful lake surrounded by snowy mountains in winter. A really nice photo spot but do wear wind breakers in winter as it is cold

spectacular view
Dec 2019
we went during winter and there was thick coat of snow at the viewing point. Even though the whole place is covered with snow, you can still feel the magnificence of Lake Toya and its peace around it. A good place for photo taking and suitable for families with young kids too.

It was a sunny day and the view along the lake was spectacular! Mount Yotei in the distance formed a beautiful backdrop for photo-shooting. Food in the nearly sea front village was delicious was inexpensive. All of these has made it an unforgettable visit.

a beautiful lake on a sunny day
Dec 2019
we visited the observation deck during the thick of winter. just a quick stop to take some pics and luckily it was a sunny day, otherwise it would not have been not as pleasant. at times, there was just too many people (tour groups) but if you avoid the gift shop, all is good.

Not worth a visit in Winter
Dec 2019 • Family
We made a day trip here by car after a stay at Noboribetsu and before heading to Sapporo. The drive was pleasant, lots of snow, so it is nice if you are from a country with no winter. Otherwise there is nothing there. Warmer weather may have been better. We stop at Aputan rest area to eat sea urchin. We also went to Wakasaimo honten shop - nothing very much to buy. The cheese cake was nice but it needed to be chilled to bring home as gift and you can get it in the airport.

We are so glad we chose Noboribetsu as our overnight stop over. It is a much better choice.

Naturally beautiful

Truly magnificent. We drove round the lake and enjoy the scenery,
You could view different views from different part of the lake.
Every view marks a good postcard collection.

Beautiful Lake Toya
Nov 2019 • Couples
Wow. What a spectacular part of the world. Autumn colours everywhere and a nightly fireworks display from boats moving across the lake. Well worth a visit. Recommend staying right on the Lake if possible as well as a visit up to see the smouldering volcano nearby.
