Hot springs and lake views in southern Hokkaido
At Toyako Onsen, you can enjoy the dynamic beauty of Hokkaido: nature, stunning lake views, awe-inspiring volcanoes and natural hot springs. You can also enjoy the many local specialty dishes made with ingredients found in the area.
Many of the hot spring hotels in Lake Toya have open-air baths where you can soak while enjoying views of the lake, and most allow you to come for the day just to enjoy the springs. Explore the town to try its abundant free hot spring foot baths. Bus tours from Sapporo to Lake Toya are a convenient way to enjoy the beauty of the area.
In winter, the town lights up with over 400,000 lights, forming a tunnel in the town square that stretches over 70 meters long and 9 meters wide. The snowy atmosphere sets the stage for a fireworks display that enlivens Lake Toya in the winter season.
How to get there
Lake Toya Onsen is 2 hours 30 minutes by highway bus from Sapporo Station or 2 hours 10 minutes by car.
