About Hokkaido

The IRONMAN race venue is located in the southwest region of Hokkaido at Lake Toya. The town of Toya has a relaxing atmosphere surrounded by natural beauty and is renowned for its Onsen (hot springs) – perfect for post-race recovery. Responsible for the hot springs is Mt. Usu, one of the most active volcanoes in the world, which is located right next to the crystal clear lake. If you are looking for a new IRONMAN challenge, ready explore a new location and experience a different culture, then this is the race for you.
