What is this picture?

It seems like an icicle, but it is not.  Maybe in English it is called “ice stalagmite”.

Direct translation from Japanese to English is an “ice bamboo shoot”. In Chinese characters, it is written as 氷筍.

An ice bamboo shoot is an inverted icicle that occurs in a cave. The drops dripping from the top is frozen instantly and is called by this name because it has a shape like a bamboo shoot.
