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.

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.

Why did Shouyou-sensei take his students to Lake Toya when the school is in Hagi? How much money did he spend?
