These hot springs have a long history: they are said to have been discovered in the second century CE. In winter, Zao Onsen Ski Resort is immensely popular with skiiers and snowboarders alike from both inside and outside Japan. Of particular fame is the phenomenon of snow and ice completely covering the trees, creating what are affectionately known as “snow monsters.”
