Miyagi Zao Rimed Trees
- "Rimed trees" are a mysterious phenomena and can only be seen in limited areas such as Zao, Hakkoda in Aomori, and Hachimantai in Akita in Japan. These "ice trees", require certain trees, winter weather conditions, abundant snowfall, and the presence or absence of a large amount of supercooled water droplets, and Miyagi Zao not only conforms to these stringent conditions but you can also see a large panorama with these vast trees clustered together. In bad weather, please experience the tremendous blizzard with an altitude of 1,600 square meters and a freezing temperature of 10 degrees Celsius, which is indispensable for creating the ice. You can enjoy the splendid natural beauty of the ice which is enjoyed worldwide, by everyone from small children to the elderly.
