Introducing the photos posted on "Everyone's Post"! This is a pickup post of the inbound tourism information SNS "Cool Japan Video". Today, I would like to introduce a post by "k Yoji". It captures the beauty and tranquility of nature. Nagatoro-cho, Chichibu-gun, Saitama Prefecture, is an area rich in nature located in western Saitama Prefecture, about 120 minutes by train from Tokyo. The entire town is designated as Nagatoro-Tamayodo Nature Park. Nagatoro's popular activities, such as playing in the river and rafting, are full of charm. The "Nagatoro Line Kudari" and "Nagatoro Rafting Tour" that go down the upper reaches of the Arakawa River by boat allow you to enjoy a thrilling experience while enjoying the nature of the four seasons. In addition, "Nagatoro Kosawaen", where you can barbecue while playing in the river, sells barbecue sets, so it is safe to go empty-handed (you cannot bring your own in this facility). We also recommend the Nagatoro Auto Campsite, where glamping and bungalows can be used. There are plenty of sightseeing spots where you can enjoy a superb view. "Nagatoro Valley Iwatami Mat" is a spot that represents Nagatoro, which is also called the "window of the earth" where you can observe historical geological formations, and is a nationally designated Place of Scenic Beauty and a natural monument. For Hodosan recommended for strolling, you can go up to the summit station with the "Hodosan Ropeway". You can enjoy seasonal scenery such as cold cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms, azaleas, and autumn leaves. In addition, Nagatoro Town is a famous place for cherry blossoms that has been selected as one of the "100 best cherry blossom spots" Japan. The so-called "cherry blossom tunnel" connecting Nagatoro Station and Nogami Station is a row of cherry blossom trees that stretches for about 2.5 km. It is also recommended for viewing by car. The promenade "Passing through cherry blossoms" at the foot of Hodosan is also a popular cherry blossom spot with more than 30 types of cherry blossoms and about 500 cherry trees planted. Both are illuminated during the best time to see them, and you can enjoy the cherry blossoms at night. ◆Nagatoro Town Tourism Association◆ 【Address】369-1305 Saitama-ken, Chichibu-gun, Nagatoro-cho, Nagatoro 529-1 【Access】Seibu Ikebukuro Line (Limited Express) to Seibu Chichibu about 80 minutes (Please see the official website for details.) ) ★ The 17th COOL JAPAN VIDEOS Photo Contest is currently being held with the theme of "Japan's best known sightseeing spots"! We look forward to receiving many applications from you!

Wow what a cool sight! I've been out to Nagatoro and Chichibu and went on a riverboat ride and I think I remember the guy pushing the boat saying something about there being icicles there during the winter. I'd love to go back and see it sometime as this looks really amazing. Also we wanted to try the kayaking in Nagatoro as well since the water was too low when we went and the boat we rode on couldn't go as far downriver. I guess they have some skiing there as well, I'm not sure if it's connected to the ropeway at all, but that's another cool thing to do in the area. The mountain is really beautiful and I think there's probably a good amount of cherry blossoms if you go in the spring. I'd like to explore Chichibu more though as I hear there's a pilgrimage there where you can see temples and shrines and stuff.

Chichibu City, Saitama in winter
"Icicle of the Thirty Hammers" near the mouth of the three peaks

The icicles I saw for the first time were different from the documents and videos
It gave me a fantastic impression somehow.
It was normal to feel cold, but somehow I felt warmth.
