Fugaku (富岳風穴 / Fugaku Wind Cave)
201 meters long with an average height of 8.7 meters, is found in the Aokigahara area. It is so named from Fugaku (富岳), a literary name for Mt. Fuji (富士山), and Fūketsu (風穴) for wind cave, because there is enough circulation of air on the cave. The walls of the cave are mostly made of basalt.
Inside the cave, there are icicles even in summer, lava terraces and rope-like lava forms. From the Edo period to the Meiji period (ca. 1600 to 1900) this cave was used to keep the eggs of silk worms.
It looks amazing.
It feel like living in the fridge.

Narusawa Ice Cave 鳴沢氷穴
The Narusawa Ice Cave (Japanese: 鳴沢氷穴, Narusawa Hyōketsu) is a lava tube located in the Aokigahara forest, in the part that belongs to Narusawa Village, Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan. It is one of the three larger lava tubes at the northern foot of Mt. Fuji, the other two caves being Fugaku Wind Cave and Lake Sai Bat Cave. All three were designated as Natural Monuments of Japan in 1929.
The Narusawa Ice Cave is 156 meters long measured along the visitor route with two lobes, with the width of 1.5 to eleven meters and the height of one to 3.6 meters. The average temperature inside the cave is about 3°C.
The cave was long used as a natural refrigerator. During the Edo period, ice cut in this cave was sent to the shōgun and his entourage in Edo. During the early 1900s, ice made here had been used in the refrigerator before the electric refrigerator arrived.
It is getting cold down here.
I'm inside the cave now.
