Ashigakubo Icicles 2019 | YOKOZE

January 5, 2019 @ 09:00 - February 24, 2019 @ 20:00


The dates for viewing the Ashigakubo icicles in 2019 have been set. The Ashigakubo Icicles are in Yokoze town. They will be open to the public from January 5th to February 24th, between 9 am and 4 pm, except when there is night illumination and you can view until 8 pm:

The icicles will be lit up on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays during that period, from about 4 pm to 8 pm. The icicles are absolutely stunning when they are lit up at night. The icicles were only discovered 4 years ago, but already they are attracting lots of visitors and lots of attention.

The cost for entering the area is 300 yen. Children under 12 years old can view for free.

Ashigakubo Icicles Access

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. Google MAP and contacts in the grey details box at the bottom of the post.
