The “Icicles of Misotsuchi” are located in Chichibu City, Saitama Prefecture. It is a well-known place of beauty in the Okuchichibu mountain region. I will introduce you to the art of winter, the “Icicles of Misotsuchi”, which are a must-see this winter.
Other than the site of Misotsuchi, there is the Wood Roof Okuchichibu Auto Camp Ground, the Arakawa River, and the Nakatsu River.

The illumination of the “Icicles of Misotsuchi” can be seen at the site of Misotsuchi. With colors alterning between blue, white and red, it creates a fantasy world throughout the surrounding area.
Two viewing platforms are installed as well, so you can enjoy the natural view of the icicles, and you can also get a good view upstream.

The icicles that are formed from the harsh winter weather are a work of art.
The Café Wood Roof's menu will warm up your cold body after looking at icicles. Available items include coffee, amazake (sweet sake), piping hot miso-potatoes, and more.
In this cold place, you can enjoy the unique experience of a bonfire.
This location has snow, so it is recommended that visitors wear boots.
