First off, make sure you know what you’re getting into in Toyako—its a SUPER small village with not much to do and no real town to walk around. The lake is nice but its also a lake.

The hotel was fine, nothing special to write home about. It’s pretty outdated both in the lobby and in the rooms. The Japanese rooms are just mattresses on a platform, not futons. Plus the tatami mats in my room have been replaced with plastic ones so that was kind of a bummer. It is right on the lake, so if you’re there between April and October you can watch the fireworks at 8:45AM from your room.

You have to reserve dinner 24 hours in advance and they will not accommodate you if you give them less time. There are very minimal options to eat anywhere else since all the hotels only serve their guests so its basically the only option. Dinner was surprisingly good for the rest of the place being kind of pitiful, except the automatic soup dispense which is pretty gross but you can just ignore its existance. Breakfast was mediocre but there’s nothing else in town.

The onsen was average, couldn’t really tell if it was clean or not but it was very hot.

Honestly, the other places here are so expensive which is why I picked this one but all in all Tokayo doesn’t have that much going on and I would recommend going elsewhere in Hokkaido.

Shocked by the shabby main entrance which was badly littered. Then greeted by stone faced reception staff. Cafeteria style dining area and again run by rude staff who prompted my party to leave as clock striked 830pm sharp but then there was another table of guest still eating.
Over priced and over hyped in agoda which i find out only now that it censors reviews to hotels’ advantage!

Room ok, common toilet on middle of each floor. Our room was end of annex (room xx6), WiFi was very weak. We need to stand next to the door to have access.

Onsen ok.

Good restaurants around Hotel and nice walk next to the lake. Good view of the fire work at 8:45pm (remember to switch off your room’s lights to enjoy.

There is nothing to recommend this old run-down hotel for except the proximity to the lake and the great views from the room (including a nightly fireworks display during certain months). The set dinner featuring bbq lamb (all you get is a heap of roughly cut up raw meat which you're supposed to cook over a small stove lit by dry fuel) is something you don't want to remember, and the set breakfast, though slightly more edible, is.nothing to write home about.

The hotel is an old building with great lakeside views. I'm told all rooms have lake views. Mine certainly had a nice view of lake and mountain...plus a grandstand view of the fireworks. But that's all about this hotel. The bbq lamb dinner that came with the room rate was something to forget...you get a heap of roughly cut lamb meat which you're supposed to bbq yourself. I left mine untouched - just wasn't worth the effort. No I wouldn't recommend this place.
