Ashigakubo Icicles 2017 | YOKOZE
January 6 @ 09:00 - February 26 @ 20:00￥200
You can currently view the Ashigakubo icicles in Yokoze town. They are lit up on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays during the period of January 6th to February 26th, from about 4 pm to 8 pm. The icicles are absolutely stunning when they are lit up at night. The icicles were only discovered 3 years ago, but already they are attracting lots of visitors and lots of attention.
The location is easier to get to than the better known Misotsuchi Icicles in neighbouring Chichibu as unlike Misotsuchi these icicles are located relatively close to a train station. The Ashigakubo station, which is on the Seibu Chichibu Line, is about a 15 minute walk from the icicles.
Japan Travel have a detailed and enthusiastic report of an outing to the icicles (I have no affiliation to this website):
