Located in southwestern Hokkaido, Shikotsu-Toya National Park (x┓ꍑ, Shikotsu-Tōya Kokuritsu Kōen) is named after its two famous lakes, Toyako and Shikotsuko. Its proximity to Sapporo makes it a popular destination for travelers with limited time in Hokkaido.

Shikotsu-Toya is the easiest national park to access from Sapporo and offers visitors a range of outdoor activities from hiking to hot springs. The spectacular scenery includes caldera lakes, onsen towns and volcanoes.

There are five parts to Shikotsu-Toya National Park, each featuring various attractions. The most famous two park areas are its namesake lakes, Toyako and Shikotsuko. The onsen towns of Noboribetsu and Jozankei are also popular. Mount Yotei, a perfectly shaped volcano near Niseko, is the fifth distinct park area.
