Lake Akan: Frozen Fields of Frost Flowers – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

Frost flowers are ice crystals formed by vapor on the surface of frozen water. This delicate natural phenomenon only appears when the ice is clear of snow, the temperature is below -15 °C, and the wind is low. In winter, Lake Akan has the perfect conditions for frost flowers to “bloom,” and can usually be observed from December through March. Join an experienced local guide on a safe, leisurely stroll across the frozen lake, and enjoy the beauty of winter in bloom.
