Many anime fans are no strangers to the name of Lake Toya. The "Toyako Lake" knives of the actor "Silver Soul" in Japanese anime "Gintama" make Toya Lake an anime fan in China in such a form. Widely known.
Toyako Lake is part of the Tokyu Toya National Park and is the northernmost non-frozen lake in Japan. Azure blue sky, clean lake water, pure white snow, free flying seagulls, everything is like a fairyland, legacy and independent. Because the lake is wider, the outer mountain is lower than the lake, so it gives a very broad feeling. There is the famous Toyako Onsen on the lakeshore, which is one of the few hot spring resorts in Hokkaido. In 2008, the G8 G8 Summit was held at the Windsor Hotel in Lake Toya. The leaders of the countries from all over the world gathered here and made Toya Lake the focus of the world.
October Hokkaido Maple Leaf Tour, Lake Toya.
With my parents choosing a chartered car from Noboribetsu to Toyako in the afternoon, the sun and the breeze blowing away the fog, the entire Toyako area is very quiet and clean, maybe the guests staying at the hot spring hotel have not arrived yet. .
Tong Yee Lake is the northernmost non-frozen lake in Japan. It will not freeze in winter, cherry blossoms in spring, fireworks in summer, autumn is the season I come to, the scenery is like a painting, the most suitable for sitting Cruises to see the red maple landscape on both sides of the river, as well as the good weather to reach the distance like the twin brothers of Mt. Fuji in the mountains, but unfortunately there is no snow in the late autumn.

Lake Toya, which is situated in the southwestern part of Hokkaido, belongs to Shikotsu-Toya National Park. Formed after frequent volcanic eruptions in the area, the wide lake appears especially vast in contrast with the relatively low-lying outer rim of the mountains. The neighboring Mount Showa-Shinzan is still active to this day and can still be seen spewing white smoke from its surface. Along the shore is the famous Lake Toya Hot Spring, one of the few hot springs resorts in Hokkaido.
