Shikotsu-Toya National Park (x┓ꍑ, Shikotsu-Tōya Kokuritsu Kōen) was named for its two famous lakes, Toya and Shikotsu. The park is located in southwestern Hokkaido. 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 volcanic mountains.

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