The snowy fields to the caves provide a spectacular view of Mt. Usuzan and Mt. Showa Shinzan, and once you set foot inside of the forest, the only sound you will hear is the sound of your snowshoes as they glide across the snow. 2.5 meters into the forest, and you will see what appears like the mouth of a shark.
