Snow monster trees

Snow monsters appear every winter at Mt. Zao in Yamagata prefecture, and tourists are dare to find out who they are!

They are the snow monster trees, a natural phenomenon occurred on the mountain. When the notorious heavy winter storms rush through the mountain range, ice start to form on the trees at the peak and heavy snow covers the trees. The snow on the trees become thinker and thicker and turn to a lot of “Snow Monster Trees” all over the mountain. This stunning view becomes a popular winter destination.
