Toyako Onsen (Toyako Hot Spring) Review

Gazing up at fireworks from a rooftop hot spring after a relaxing soak in the thermal waters and a pleasant dinner of local specialties—this is why thousands of Japanese come to this one-street town throughout the year. From April 28 to October 31, the 30-minute firework display is likely to be the highlight of your stay. A waterside walk in front of the wall of hotels is relaxing before the bus tours arrive in late afternoon. If you overstay your welcome in banquet areas, cleaning ladies will come in and start vacuuming. It's one reason why Hokkaido is known for top-quality food but so-so service.
