Lake Toya-ko is a caldera lake with the circumference of 43 kilimeters and the maximum depth of 180 meters. It abounds with fish (especially Kokanee salmon) and has a magnificent view with Mt. Showa-Shinzan and Mt. Usu. The four various-sized islets called Nakajima are most picturesque, and wild Yezo deers can be seen there.
