We were not fortunate enough to visit on a clear day so views were restricted but in some ways even more beautiful. The must rolled over the islands and gave the impression that they were actually floating. The gift shop was really lovely too.

Nice atmosphere. Stunning surrounding. Good one night stay. Firework is OK! The USUZAN rope way is must do.

2D1N will be a recommended duration if you want to explore Lake Toya (or longer, if you want to explore and enjoy at a relaxing pace.) It's a pity we only had a day here. Dropped by Ukimodo Park and Silo Observatory, spent most of...More

Fireworks starts at 8:45pm and last for 20 minutes. Hotels that surrounding Toya lake can clearly see the fireworks directly from your room. It is one of my favourites in Hokkaido, definitely worth to spend a night here.
