Toyako Onsen

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath
This hot spring district, one of the largest in Hokkaido, was created by the eruption of Mt. Yosomiyama in 1910. Many hot spring hotels stand side by side in the area, particularly on the bank of Lake Toya. There are also day trip bathhouses and free footbaths, and here visitors can luxuriate in relaxing hot spring waters while enjoying the vast, picturesque scenery of the Lake Toya area. The chloride springs found here contain an abundance of potassium and sodium; note that they are not drinkable. Lake Toya Long-Run Fireworks Nights fireworks displays are held each year here from late April through October, and during these times the area bustles with many tourists. Taking a dip in a hot spring bath while enjoying a fireworks display is particularly fun.
