The Toyako Onsen is said that hot springs spring due to be erupted by Mt. Yosomiyama (四十三山) in 1910. Toyako Onsen Cooperative Societya unitedly manage the hot springs, and distribute the hot springs to each hot spring facilities such as hotels and ryokan. Therefore all the hot spring facilities have same hot springs basically. The differences of each hot springs are adding water or heating hot springs or adding chlorine sterilization depending on the hotels and the ryokan. 3 footbaths, Toron-no-Yu (洞龍の足湯), Yakushi-no-Yu (薬師の湯) and Choju-no-Yu (長寿の足湯), and 10 handbaths are built here and there.

Mt. Showashinzan

Mt. Showashinzan (昭和新山) in the south of Lake Toya is a volcanic lava dome with 398 m in height. Red surface of the mountain catches eyes, so it is conspicuous at a distance. Speaking of the Mt. Showashinzan, an episode that a wheat field rose just overnight is famous. Actually, the Mt. Showashinzan changed to a current shape after 2 years. It was named "Showashinzan" because Mt. Showashinzan rose in 1944 (Showa period) and it has designated as a special natural treasure since 1957. This volcano is called a type of the beronite volcano, and it is one of only 2 volcanos in the world. Mr. Masao Mimatsu (三松 正夫) that is famous for observing the Mt. Showashinzan and making Mimatsu Diagram (ミマツダイヤグラム) bought the land, so the Mt. Showashinzan is a private land at present. By the way, Mt Usu is very close from the Mt. Showashinzan. Admission free.

Wakasaimo of Wakasaimo Honpo

Wakasaimo (わかさいも) that everybody knows in Hokkaido is a Japanese cake like taro and has been sold since 1930 at Wakasaimo Honpo. As a souvenir of Toyako Onsen (洞爺湖温泉), it has been standard souvenir from old days. An origin is said to be Wakasayaimo (わかさ屋いも) of Wakasaya-Shinise (若狭屋老舗) in Suttu town. Both seems to be same whole families. I thought that Toyako Onsen was a birthplace. It is Lake Toya Head office that I have been regarding as the birthplace for many years. Article is here
