Lake Toya is one of the most beautiful, serene spots we saw in Japan. It was Golden Week, but we did not experience the mobs like we saw in the cities. It was so quiet and peaceful, we would not have minded staying here for...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.

The view is amazing, the best fireworks i've ever seen. Must visit Lake Farm Hill to see the mountain view.

Beware of steps especially in winter. The floors are quite slippery. The lake toya is one of my many favourites in Hokkaido. Worth the money and time.More

Must visit place as part of our travel to the onsen area. However as it was winter, the streets are almost empty and so is the lake. It's too quiet to stay for a night. I guess it much better to visit other than winterMore
