Blue In Daytime, Rainbow At Night! Beautiful Light-up Only During Winter

Hyotenka-no Mori (Sub-Zero Forest) at Akigami Onsen Town in Takayama, Gifu Prefecture. People sprinkle water to make these ice pillars, and they look blue in daytime and are lighted up in rainbow colors at night. It's very cold at night, so you need thick winter clothes.
