The depth of the lake is 327 meters, which makes it the third deepest lake after Lake Tazawa-ko in Akita and Lake Shikotsu-ko in Hokkaido. The natural beauty of the greenery and tinted autumn leaves reflected on the lake attracts many tourists.
The Oirase-gawa River is the only stream that has Lake Towada-ko as its source, and the upper reach of the moutain stream runs for 14 kilometers. The area around the stream is famous for its splendid landscape and the beauty of the colorful autumn leaves.
Yasumiya is a main accomodation center and tourist spot on Lake Towada-ko. "Statue of Maidens" stands at Gozen-ga-hama in this area is a masterpiece of a sculptor Kotaro Takamura and the symbol of the lake. Yasumiya also has numerous boat tours of the lake.
