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.
In spite of located in Hokkaido, the climate around this place is mild in general and the lake never freezes over. The tourist season continues from April until the end of October, and fireworks show is held during the period. Toya-ko Onsen Spa, with abundant hot water located in the south of the lake, is known as one of the largest hot-spring resorts in Hokkaido.
