Just one good point is walking distance to the Toya lake Expensive ryokan, but room facilities are very poor. No kettle, cups in room. Guests are not allowed to use dinning room to get hot water to drink. Host is very cold, not friendly. Tatami has mold smell
Daiwa Ryokan was near the JR station. It is a good location but the rooms were decently heated. The corridors were especially chilly in the subzero temperatures in December (they really should on the heaters there). Otherwise there was a nice onsen there which we could enjoy. We stayed for one night there.
We loved our stay here. It's convenient to get around. Tatami style rooms very very clean and comfortable. Loved the hot spring here too. The owners are an elderly couple who doesn't speak much English but they were always smiling. Would definite stay here again if we come back.
It is a bit far from the bus terminal but acceptable distance. The room is super big, include a living room which can accommodate another 4 person at least. Our room is facing the lake, at night when the fireworks show started, we can view it very clearly from inside the room. The onsen is free. But they do not have a separate bath room. You can only bathe in the onsen section.
Daiwa seems suspended in time - service, decor, and prices set in the 1970s. For a stay at Toya onsen (Toya-ko) of up to three nights, Daiwa is more than adequate for most needs. Pricing is set at an extremely reasonable, if not amazingly cheap rate for the spacious room provided. For two people, we had access to the standard 8+ tatami-sized room, plus a small room for bedding (very retro), and the standard small sitting area. Second, showering/bathing is via communal showers, with the onsen waters drawn from local springs (it is an ocre colour, which is off-putting at first - and on occasion indiscriminate in quality). If you are not up to this (shy, etc) then I recommend alternative accommodation at the outset. We arrived the day before a typhoon was set to hit, and battening down the windows, we found this old building sound, snug (and remarkably quiet despite the howling wind and horizontal rain outside). The ryokan survived, through the last 50 years, two earthquakes followed by volcanic eruptions. - potentially through good placement and good construction. The last eruption in 2000 left a destructive mark across town, and it is no doubt still painful in the remains of buildings left empty and ashen behind. Daiwa provides a gateway to understanding this; it also provides ready access to the caldera lake, hiking and some top class food. I am sure that the owners would have wanted to put a coat of paint on the old girl over the last few years (or to have hired an extra hand or two), but a refurbishment and new staff will raise tariffs significantly. I suggest staying while the tatami is real - if a little worn and shabby - and providing as much support to this wonderful little ryokan as possible.…
