Accommodation in Toyako, Hokkaido (Toyako Manseikaku Hotel Lakeside Terrace)


Name: Toyako Manseikaku Hotel Lakeside Terrace

Address: 21 Tōyakoonsen, Tōyako-chō, Abuta-gun, Hokkaidō 049-5721

Map code: 321 519 551*55

Approx room rate per pax: 23,000 Yen

Parking rate: No charge

Free Wi-Fi access: Yes, but only at the hotel reception area

My rating: 4.5/5 (Good rating cause of the free fireworks display every night!)


  • Off-street parking lots; 2-minute walk away from the hotel reception
  • 7-Eleven is just in front of the hotel reception
  • Free red bean pancakes given out during certain hours at the hotel’s snacks shop
  • Extremely polite service staff
  • Big bottles of shampoo and body foam
  • Daily housekeeping service
  • In-hotel washing and drying machines – one each, situated in the onsen bath area. 300 Yen for 30-min wash and 100 Yen for 30-min drying cycle. No need to bring your own detergent.
  • Nice breakfast spread
  • Lake view – Lake Toya!
  • Many sculptures around Lake Toya
  • Easy access to boating activities as the lake’s mere metres away
  • Free fireworks display every night. Closest I’ve ever been to a fireworks display. View the display from the comfort of your room. Walk to the lakeside for a closer view. Max convenience.


Room for improvement:

  • No in-room tap for drinking water. You have to call reception/ operator and they will deliver a jug of iced/hot water.
  • Staff couldn’t quite understand our requests; language barrier
  • Hotel needs a renovation/ revamp – old vibes.

Some notes:

  • Hotels typically charge for parking. Parking rates may vary according to the size of your car.
  • Space is a premium in Japan, so don’t expect super spacious rooms.
  • All hotels we stayed at provided Febreeze or an equivalent. Thumbs up man. Good for them shoes or the carpet.
