    2017 10 / 1 visit. Was really nice weather and season. We recommend that if you are in a good Walker you have time come explore on the promenade.

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.
