The lake's heart shape is clearly visible when viewed from the top. It becomes a bright blue heart, surrounded by red-orange or green leaves depending on the season. The lake came into the limelight after a TV commercial featured this lake in Japan. People realized that "Heart Lake" wasn't a Photoshopped illusion and they discovered that it was a real and in a natural formation. Soon folks began to visit and appreciate its peculiar appearance. Previously the lake was known as Kamuito, which means "A swamp where God lives." 

In aerial shots of  Lake Toyoni is very attractive and show its grand form. It's possible to capture the perfect shot by flying a drone high into the air. Even take a helicopter tour to see the lake from above. The reason is enough that the aerial view is great. The protected forest surrounding Lake Toyoni contains many wild animals. It also contains a large number of brown bears that hikers should be aware of.
