Tucked away among the foothills of the Hakkoda mountain range, Towada tourism revolves around its eponymous lake and the surrounding national park. Famed for its colors throughout the year, the park hosts a number of hot springs, with small resort towns centered around them. A scattered few temples, museums, and galleries dot the downtown area of this small city, but the real appeal for trips to Towada lies outside of the urban area, where you can admire seasonal change and Honshu's volcanic topography. Put Towada at the heart of your travel plans by using our Japan day trip site.

Where to stay in Towada

The main accommodations of Towada lie in the downtown area, sitting along the main thoroughfares and narrower streets to the east of the central park. The mixed bag of hotels generally offers Western-style rooms in luxury, standard, and budget options. Most visitors to Towada, however, will look to stay somewhere in the national park, primarily in the areas surrounding hot springs. Look close to the lake and up in the Hakkoda mountains for some of the most characterful spa hotels.
