Rules for non-powered vessels (Canoes, SUPs etc)

As of July 2021, there are new rules and official advice in place for non-powered vessels on Lake Toya. Here’s our translation below (original Japanese here).

Lake Toya Non-powered Vessel Rules (Canoes, SUPs etc)

On Lake Toya, accidents due to rough weather and lack of skills are on the increase. In particular, there has been an increase in the number of life-threatening accidents involving paddlers heading to the central island, Nakajima. When using non-powered vessels, please observe the following to avoid accidents.

Users failing to follow the rules for using Lake Toya will be ordered to leave the parking lot you are using. In addition, your use of vessels on Lake Toya may be prohibited.

Rules for using Lake Toya

  1. Life jackets must be worn. SUP users must be equipped with a leash cord.
  2. In the event that you have been drinking alcohol or are otherwise impaired, you are prohibited from operating a non-powered vessel.
  3.  It is prohibited to enter routes used by sightseeing ferries.
  4. It is prohibited to disturb or impede the activities of commercial non-powered vessel tours (commercial vessels are equipped with flags).
  5.  Other activities that disturb public order and standards of decency are prohibited.
Pointers for avoiding accidents
  • Use the lake at your own risk – paddlers must be proficient at self-rescue, and must have the sufficient skills to deal with a capsize themselves.
  • Avoid using the lake alone – travel in groups.
  • Carry communication equipment (such as a cell phone with a waterproof pack) to ensure a communication system in case of emergency.
  • Check weather forecasts and lake information, and if the weather changes suddenly, head to shore immediately.
  • There have been incidents of life-threatening accidents involving paddlers attempting to paddle to Nakajima island. In order to prevent incidents, paddling to Nakajima Island is not recommended.
  • Wear wetsuits and clothing suitable for the day’s air and water temperature.
  • If you encounter or witness an accident, promptly report it to the fire department or police.

25 Introduction はじめに
26 Lake Toya, located in the Shikotsu-Toya National Park, is a tourist destination that attracts many visitors from Japan and overseas throughout the year, and is also a place of livelihood for local residents who enjoy the benefits of nature through farming, fishing, accommodation and tourism. The area of Lake Toya has been designated as a UNESCO World Geopark as a result of its magnificent and beautiful nature and the geological value of the caldera, which was formed by volcanic activity in ancient times. 支笏洞爺国立公園内に位置する洞爺湖は、一年を通じて国内外から多くの観光客が 訪れる観光地であり、また、豊かな自然の恩恵を受けながら農業や漁業、あるいは宿 泊、観光業などを営む住民の方々の、生活の場ともなっている地域です。洞爺湖の一 帯は、その雄大で美しい自然と、太古の火山活動により形成されたカルデラの地質学 的な価値から、「洞爺湖有珠山ジオパーク」としてユネスコ世界ジオパークに認定さ れています。
27 In recent years, however, the use of the lake for leisure activities has become more diverse, including water sports. Due to the limited number of places in Hokkaido where people can enjoy leisure activities on the lake, the number of people who enjoy powered boats such as jetskis, as well as non-powered boats such as canoes and SUPs, has been increasing every year. こうした自然豊かな環境は、キャンプや遊漁など、多くの方々にレジャーを楽しむ 場として親しまれてきましたが、近年では水上スポーツをはじめとしてレジャー利用 も多様化し、また北海道内では湖沼でレジャーを楽しめる場所が限られていることも あって、洞爺湖においても、水上バイクなどの動力船のほか、カヌーやSUPといっ た非動力船を楽しむ利用者の方々が、年々増えてきているところです。
28 However, there has been an increase in the number of incidents in recent years, such as irresponsible operation, noise problems caused by jetskis, as well as water-related accidents and mishaps involving non-powered boats. This has led to a strong need for safety measures and self-management on the lake. However, it is a fact that some tourists and local residents have complained about the violation of rules and manners by some lake users. In some cases, there have been violations of the law, such as the unauthorised erection of structures, and the etiquette of lake users has been called into question. しかし、その一方で水上バイクなどの悪質航行や騒音問題、非動力船利用者の水 難事故や遭難といった事例が近年増加しており、湖上での安全対策や自己管理が強く 求められる状況となっています。これまでも動力船乗場等においては、利用上のルー ル遵守について注意喚起を行っておりますが、一部の観光客や地域住民からは、ルー ルやマナー違反が確認され、様々な苦情が出ているのも事実です。なかには工作物の 無許可設置など、法律に抵触しているケースもあり、利用者のモラルが問われています。
29 As a national park, Lake Toya is not only a national asset but also part of the living space of the people who live there. 国立公園に指定されている洞爺湖は、国民の財産であるとともに、そこで暮らされている方々の生活圏の一部でもあります。
30 In order to ensure the safety of all visitors to Lake Toya and to ensure they do not cause any inconvenience to the local community, we have prepared this manual to guide you through the basic rules and etiquette for using Lake Toya. Please refer to this manual and follow the instructions and precautions at the various sites to enjoy your leisure time at Lake Toya. このたびは、洞爺湖を利用される皆様にしっかりと安全対策を行っていただき、地 域の方々に迷惑がかからないよう楽しんでいただくために、基本的な事項を記載した 洞爺湖利用ルール&マナーガイドマニュアルを作成しましたので、ぜひ本マニュアル を参照いただき、各種利用場所での注意事項および指導にしたがって、洞爺湖でのレ ジャーを楽しんでいただきますようお願いいたします。

32 Lake Toya Overview 洞爺湖の概要
33 Lake Toya is located in the southwestern part of Hokkaido, as part of the Shikotsu-Toya National Park. It sits in the Toya Caldera, which straddles the towns of Toyako and Sobetsu. The island in the middle of Lake Toya, commonly called Nakajima, is a group of lava domes formed by an eruption. The lava domes are called Oshima, Kannonjima, Bentenjima and Mandojima. 洞爺湖は、北海道南西部に位置しており、支笏洞爺国立公園の一部、洞爺湖町と壮瞥 町の二町を跨いだ「洞爺カルデラ」内にできた湖として、二級河川長流川水系に属して います。洞爺湖の中央にある中島は、噴火により形成された溶岩ドーム群で、湖面に頭 を出しているのが大島、観音島、弁天島、饅頭島となり、中島はその総称となります。
34 Lake Toya is the ninth largest lake in Japan in terms of area, and the third largest caldera lake in Japan after Lake Kussharo and Lake Shikotsu. It is a roughly circular lake measuring approximately 11km east to west and 9km north to south. 洞爺湖の面積は日本で9番目に広く、カルデラ湖としては屈斜路湖、支笏湖に次いで国内で3番目の大きさとなり、東西約11km南北約9kmのほぼ円形の湖です。
35 On the southern shore of the lake are two of Hokkaido's most notable hot spring resorts, Toyako Onsen and Sobetsu Onsen. The "Nakajima Tour Boat" operated by Toyako Kisen, which departs from the pier in front of the station in Toyako Onsen, allows visitors to stop by the islands and observe the unique ecosystem uniquely adapted to the caldera environment. 湖の南岸には北海道内有数の温泉街である洞爺湖温泉、壮瞥温泉があり、洞爺湖温泉 街にある駅前桟橋から出航している洞爺湖汽船の「中島巡り遊覧船」では、中島に立ち 寄って、環境に適応した独自の生態系などを観察することができます。
36 The lake is also used for inland fishing for cherry salmon, damselfish and pond smelt, with hatchery and release operations underway. Boat fishing is prohibited outside the fishing season (1 June to 30 June and 1 December to 31 March) and in the area up to 2km from the shore of Nakashima. また、湖では孵化・放流事業を進めながらサクラマス、ヒメマス、ワカサギ等を漁獲 する内水面漁業が行われており、遊漁期間(6/1 ~ 6/30、12/1 ~ 3/31)以外の船釣りと、中島沿岸から2kmまでの区域は、遊漁禁止となっています。
37 In addition to this, a project has been carried out since 2006 to survey and capture uchida crayfish, a specified invasive species. Activities have also been carried out to protect the lake's water plants and biodiversity, such as setting up crab cages along the entire shore of the lake and monitoring the crab distribution area through diving surveys. ほかにも湖の一円では、特定外来生物の指定を受けて、ウチダザリガニの調査・捕獲 事業が平成18年より実施されており、湖岸全域のカニ籠の設置や潜水調査により分布 域をモニタリングするなど、湖の水草や生物多様性を守るための活動が行われています。

156 Are you observant of local weather lore? ■ 観天望気を心掛けていますか?
157 Observational weather forecasting (or, weather lore) is a unique method of weather forecasting based on the characteristics of the local environment and weather changes, using cloud, wind and temperature conditions to predict changes in the weather based on previous experience. Acquiring good information about the local weather conditions from someone who is familiar with the area, such as a boat ramp attendant, can be very useful for short-term weather forecasting when you don't have much recent weather information. 観天望気とは、その地方の環境や天候の変化の特徴を踏まえた独自の気象判断方法で、 雲・風・気温などの状況から、これまでの経験を基に天気の変化を予測するものです。 観天望気はそれぞれの地方、地域ごとに違います。その地方の観天望気に詳しい人や 受付窓口の係員などから十分な知識を得ておけば、直近の気象情報が得られないとき などの短い間の天候予測には非常に有効です。
158 When the surface of the lake becomes mirror-like, then strong winds are expected, so be careful! ○ 湖面が鏡のような状態になると、その後、強い風が吹くことが予想されるので
159 When a flock of waterfowl takes off suddenly, be aware that there may be strong winds blowing from the direction towards which they took off! ○ 水鳥の群れが急に飛び立つと、その後、飛び立った方向から強い風が吹くことがあるので要注意!
160 Note that Lake Toya has specific weather conditions that are different from those forecast for the surrounding areas! ○ 洞爺湖は、周辺地域の天気予報とは違った特有の気象状況となるので要注意!

222 In the event of a water-related accident 水難事故に遭遇した場合
223 In the unlikely event of an accident, immediately initiate lifesaving measures and notify other nearby vessels, the fire brigade and the police with the following information, as much as you are able. 万が一、事故が発生した場合には、直ちに人命の救助を行うとともに、付近の船舶、 消防署、警察署などに以下の要領で、わかっている項目から正確に連絡してください。
224 1. The name of the caller ①通報者の名前
225 2. Where is the location? ②場所はどこか
226 3. What kind of accident or water accident? ③どのような事故・水難か
227 4. What type of vessel and how many people are on board ④どのような船で、何人が乗っているか
228 5. The number of injured persons, the conditions of their injuries and the measures currently being taken ⑤けが人の数、けがの状況および現在とっている措置
229 6. The condition of the vessel and the measures currently being taken. ⑥船舶の状況および現在とっている措置
230 As well as using a mobile phone to call for help, you should also ensure that you have other means of emergency communication (e.g. a lookout on land, an emergency contact person, or a radio). また、救助を求める手段として、携帯電話を使用することはもちろん、携帯電話以外 の緊急連絡手段(陸上の見張りや緊急連絡員の配置、無線機の携行等)を確保してください。
231 Other easy-to-use distress signals are: そのほか、使いやすい遭難信号は・・・
232 1. Red flaming flare with parachute or red hand held flame (red flare) ①落下傘のついた赤色の炎火ロケットまたは赤色の手持ち炎火(信号紅炎)
233 2. Smoke signal with orange smoke. ②オレンジ色の煙が出る発煙信号
234 3. A hand signal in which the arms are stretched out to the left and right and slowly moved up and down repeatedly. ③左右に伸ばした腕を繰り返しゆっくり上下させる手信号
235 4. SOS signal by whistle or torch. ④笛や懐中電灯等によるSOSの警笛や照射
236 In addition to these signals, you can use any means you can think of to let people know as quickly as possible, such as shouting, banging on things, waving towels or clothing. このような信号のほかにも、大声を出す、物を叩いて大きな音を出す、布やタオル・ 衣類を振るなどあらゆる手段を使って、可能なかぎり早く周りの人に知らせる工夫をします。
237 In case of an accident, it is always advisable to keep a distress signal kit on board and to be familiar with its use. 万が一の事故発生に備え、遭難信号に用いる道具は常に船内に備えつけておき、使用方法を熟知しておきましょう。
238 It is also important to train regularly to be able to carry out emergency rescue operations in the event of an accident in the vicinity of your vessel. また、付近で事故が発生したときなどに応急的な救助活動ができるよう、日ごろから訓練をしておくことも重要です。
239 In the unfortunate event that your companion falls into the water, you should immediately do the following. 不幸にも同行者が水中に転落・漂流した場合は、ただちに次の事を行ってください。
240 1. If the casualty is not wearing a life vest, throw in an object that will keep him afloat as soon as possible. It should be as buoyant as possible and have a rope attached to it so that the person can attach himself to it. ①もしも、漂流者が救命胴衣を着用していない場合には、早急に浮力を維持できる物 品等を投げ入れます。漂流者がロープ等で身体を浮体に固縛できるよう、可能なかぎり浮力が大きくロープ等が装着されているものにしましょう。
241 2. Determine the location and condition of the casualty. Assess the person's position and situation. In addition to the flotation device thrown to the person, throw in another flotation device also, so that it is difficult to lose sight of the person. ②漂流者の位置および状況を把握します。このとき漂流者が使用する浮体とは別に、 目印となる浮体を投入すると、漂流者を見失いにくくなります。

244 1. Breathe deeply. In this situation, it is easy to panic. The most important thing is to keep calm and collect yourself. Taking big deep breaths will help you to stay calm and collected. ①大きく深呼吸します。人はこのような場合、パニックに陥ってしまいます。自分を冷静に見直すことが一番重要です。大きな深呼吸をすることで、落ち着いて冷静になることができます。
245 2. Even if you are unable to see a vessel in your vicinity, wait for rescue with faith that you will be rescued. The more agitated you are, the more energy you will lose, so try to relax. ②付近に船舶を発見することができなくても、必ず助かるという信念を持って救助を待ちます。焦れば焦るほど体力を消耗するので、ゆっくりと構えましょう。
246 3. The more you move about in the water, the more heat your body loses and the more energy you waste. Stay as still as possible and try to keep warm. ③水中では運動をすればするほど体熱が奪われ、エネルギーのロスになります。可能なかぎりじっとして保温に努めましょう。
247 Adopt the HELP position (Heat Escape Lessening Posture) HELP(HEAT ESCAPE LESSENING POSTURE)「熱 放出低減姿勢」をとりましょう。
248 4. If there is a rocky outcrop in the vicinity, attempt to climb up on it if the waves are calm. However, if the waves are rough and there is a risk of you colliding with the rocks, you should move away from them. ④付近に岩場等がある場合、波が穏やかであれば、そのまま岩場に上陸してください。 しかし、波が激しいなど激突の危険がある場合には、逆に離れて移動しましょう。
249 Regarding Search and Rescue Matters 遭難救助・捜索等について
250 In the event of an accident etc where an emergency rescue or search is necessary, the fire department or police will be dispatched upon receiving a call.
