Nagabashiri Wind Caves| Akita


Nagabashiri wind caves video we filmed last year is here.  Nagabashiri Wind Caves are mysterious cool spots that blow out cold air (0-5℃) even in midsummer.. You can go out to the trails from the third floor of the Wind Caves Eco-Museum. You can experience the mysterious coolness, observing the alpine plants (National Natural Monument) and natural cold storages. Come experience the natural wonders and relieve from heat!

You have to come see it with your own eyes.
Hakkoda Gold Line in Aomori Prefecture is located close to Sukayu Onsen. The  Japanese Meteorological Agency calls this the snowiest inhabited place on earth with an average yearly snowfall of 17.6 m.

The gates to Hakkoda Gold Line, a 8.1 km road that connects two Sukayu Onsen and Yachi Onsen, open every year on April 1st. The size of these snow walls is no joke. In some places they can reach up to 12 m.  This year, the rain that fell two weeks prior to the opening made the walls shrink to about 7 meters. 

You have to see it with your own eyes!
