Zao: the only place to see soft rime
in Japan!

Soft rime is a condition that occurs when super-cool water droplets descend from fog and attach to objects such as trees, creating frozen layers of fragile white ice.
They start to form in weak windy conditions and temperatures of -5℃ or below, and transform into larger, more elaborate shapes that bend in the direction of the stronger wind.
Zao is famous for its soft rime-covered trees which take on beautiful, but menacing forms of 'snow monsters' stalking the mountains. They are a big attraction for tourists during the ski season.
