Lake Yamanaka is the highest altitude in Fuji Goko (five lakes around Mt Fuji), so the lake surface often freezes in winter. This year there was a big temperature difference, so the surface of the lake froze, melted, snowfall repeatedly occurred. As a result, a very rare scene has been created. It looks like a small mountain range formed by snow blowing on the frozen lake surface. It's wonder that this beautiful mountain range was made naturally. Mother of nature is great and very mysterious.
