    Plan attractions

       
    プランの魅力 Zao / winter specialty "Snow Monster" の画像

    Zao / winter specialty "Snow Monster" "Rime on trees" is a natural work of art that can only be created when a number of natural phenomena overlap. Even though it is "widespread in the world," tree ice can only be seen in Japan in Zao, Hakkoda in Aomori, Hachimantai in Akita, and the Black Forest in Germany. The rime on trees seen in Zao from late December to mid-February is nicknamed "Snow Monster". This ice is a rare natural area that can only be seen in some areas where conditions such as mountain and basin arrangements, northwesterly winds from Siberia, low temperatures that cause powder snow, and evergreen conifers (Abies mariesii) overlap. It's a work of art.

    プランの魅力 Light up the rime on trees for a limited time! の画像

    Light up the rime on trees for a limited time! The Zao Ropeway will light up snow monsters for a limited time. The appearance of the rime on the trees floating in the quiet and jet-black darkness with colorful lighting is completely different from the one that shines in the silver of the daytime, and it feels like you are lost in a fantastic world. Please enjoy the fantasy "Rime on trees" on a winter night.

    プランの魅力 Zao Onsen (large open-air bath) の画像

    Zao Onsen (large open-air bath) Zao Onsen is a strongly acidic sulfur spring. Sulfur springs have the function of activating mucopolysaccharide proteins in the body, increasing the amount of water in the body and rejuvenating the skin and blood vessels. In addition to the blood circulation promoting effect, the sulfur spring has the effect of sterilizing the epidermis and strengthening the skin, and also promotes "beautiful skin"! It is also called "soap-free hot water" because the ingredients of the hot water wash away the oil on the skin. The rejuvenation, sterilization, and skin-beautifying effects of skin and blood vessels are truly "Beauty-making hot water." * This plan does not include bathing fees and other expenses. Please pay by yourself.
