Dear Partners,

Greetings from JTB Global Marketing and Travel!
Rime ice (Juhyo) is a natural phenomenon where trees are covered with snow and ice making them look like snow monsters standing in the forest. Snow Monster Tree Illumination Viewing in Zao is reputed worldwide for its beauty. Riding on the snowmobile "Nightcruiser", you can experience the night spectacle of the lighted Juhyo. We recommend 4 convenient hotels for the illusion tour.

[ Tour Schedule ] Dec. 22, 2018 - Mar. 3, 2019

1. Trees covered in snow and ice, known as "Snow Monsters," are beautiful, natural works of art created by the unique conditions on Mt. Zao. Get lost in a fantasy world created by swathes of illuminated Snow Monsters at night--an experience completely different from seeing their dazzling-white appearance during the day.
2. The heater-equipped, special Nightcruiser snowmobile gives passengers a great experience of the illuminated Snow Monster trees and Zao scenery. * The ride lasts around 30 minutes, and about 5 minutes will be allotted for customers to alight and take pictures at the viewing point, but the time spent outside may be changed depending on the weather and temperature.
3. This tour is typically available for booking within 7 days of the tour date when there are open seats on group tours, but bookings on this plan are available earlier than 7 days before departure.
4. Customers have the option to use snow jackets and snow boots. Please make a request during reception at Zao Ropeway on the day of the tour. *May be unavailable as numbers are limited.
