In a ringed expression pit cave, annual average temperature is around 0 degrees Celsius. It is the cave which was made by the lava flow flew in the eruption of the side volcano of Mount Fuji in 864 years. The existence of this cave is precious in geologically. I can see a pillar of the ice made of a drop of water which bled drips down from a ceiling in the winter season and freezes, and there was natural icicles.
In the Narusawa Ice Cave there are souvenir shop and stalls, also the facilities such as the Mount Fuji gallery and it is the spot where is popular among tourists.
