Zao Ice Monster Juhyo Light Up 2021

Rime of Zao(Zao’s Juhyo), where you can see the rare superb view in the world, is a natural phenomenon that occurs in the vicinity of the Jizosan summit of Zao Hot Springs Ski Resort in Yamagata, Yamagata Prefecture Japan. It has been confirmed only in some subalpine areas in the Ou Mountains that cross the Tohoku region from north to south, and there are many cases where there are no clear reports on rime overseas. It is said that the topography and climate peculiar to Yamagata Prefecture are related to the formation of Zao’s frost-covered trees. The snow clouds that caused snow in the Asahi mountain range become supercooled water droplets that do not freeze even at 0 degrees or less while passing through the Yamagata basin, and the water droplets and snow are mixed while the snow clouds are rising in the Zao mountain range. The northwest monsoon that blows at 10 to 15 m / s and the average temperature of -10 ° C to -15 ° C create a fantastic rime on trees. At the Yamagata Zao Onsen Ski Resort, Zao’s tree ice is lit up at night, and you can enjoy a fantastic night view that is different from the daytime. Zao’s Juhyo is also known as an ice monster, and it seems that it is derived from the fact that it looks like a monster.
