Zao Juhyo Festival蔵王樹氷まつり


A festival held in line with the occurrence of the frost trees of Zao, a world-famous phenomenon in which trees in the area become completely encased in columns of ice and snow. At night, the trees are lit up, giving the so-called snow monsters a magical beauty. There are also snowmobile tours held which take visitors up close to the trees. The Fuyu no Hanabi fireworks display is also a must-see, especially on a clear winter's night.

          Yamagata Areas


          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
