Are you familiar with the ZenGoro Falls on the Norikura Kogen Plateau? During the green season, the falls cascade down with such force that you can feel the spray of water. However, in the winter months, it transforms into an ice waterfall. During the coldest months, you can even approach the falls and the frozen river nearby, where you will be amazed by its powerful presence. In Japan, there are some plans to light up artificially created ice waterfalls or ice sculptures during winter. But it’s rare to find a naturally formed ice waterfall that has been lit up. If it’s a clear night without the moon, you can see the stars sparkling in the sky. And, if the moon is out, its light creates a fantastic and mystical world. Finally, you can also enjoy a snowshoe downhill ride.
It is quite rare to find natural ice waterfall light-up in various places in Japan.
Raicho is the only one conducting a night tour of the Zengoro Falls. You can enjoy a private time.
When you turn off the lights, there is complete silence in the pitch-black darkness. You can experience the ultimate noiselessness in the serenity that cannot be felt during the day.
※Snowshoes, poles, and gaiters are included in the tour fee.
