As you all know, Suwa Lake is famous for crossing the gods, but do you know Other about the mysterious natural phenomenon of "Oshi-shi"? 
Suwa Lake has particularly strong winds in winter, and once the ice that has not been completely frozen breaks, and the ice fragments are pushed up to the shore by strong winds, a phenomenon called "yomi ice". This seems to be a natural phenomenon that can be seen in large lakes and not in rivers that stream all the time. The pieces of ice look like large pieces of glass, and you can see a fantastic scenery by layering them. In addition, the ice reflected by the sunlight looks very beautiful.
Take a walk, take pictures, or experience the fantastic winter Suwa Lake while running or walking.

I haven't been out for 6 years, including the last winter. It is not always possible to see the ice and the god crossing. Therefore, in winter, we distribute live videos on the website of the Suwa Tourist Association.
We strongly recommend that you check the videos before visiting.
◎ Even if there is ice, riding on the ice is very dangerous because there is a risk of falling into Suwa Lake. Please be sure to observe good manners and watch from a safe place.
