Thanks to the particular weather of Zao, in winter you can see how the many trees become covered in a snow mantle, a phenomenon known as “Juhyo”. For 53 days only, on weekends from December 23rd of 2017 (Saturday) to March 4th of 2018 (Sunday) you will be able to take part in the Juhyo Corridor of Fantasy tour, where visitors get to ride on a snow tractor and look at the lighted up Juhyo trees in the night for a fantasy-like experience.
