  • We visited in late July. Wander upstream towards downstream from the Hoshino resort hotel for shuttle service. Had good weather, or during the week because many people and could walk comfortably. Fall foliage season is also could revisit the imagined what would become another look and if you want to try.

  • It is the most beautiful place I have ever visited in Japan. Silent, fresh gas and easy to access. If you are planning to go Aomori, dont miss it.  more »
  • It is a beautiful place, clean fresh well water. I think the location easy to find anyone, and not up and down. 2nd time visit is this is the place to go as well.

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.
