Shirahige Falls, Biei-cho

4.0
Witness the raw beauty of nature at Shirahige Falls, where water graciously cascades down a mossy rock face. Mineral-rich water forms a curtain of whitewash, which falls down the rock face before revealing its cobalt blue color in the river below. Majestic views of the waterfall are completed by the Taisetsu Mountains in the background. If you're a keen photographer, bring an ultra-wide lens to capture both the waterfall and the nearby mountain range in your shots.

  • Located in the Biei, a view of the falls on the snow season is very amazing and cool as hell

  • Water in a mysterious atmosphere during the day light. Blue Lake is near. A couple of places to stay in the neighborhood. If you're a trip once in Sapporo.

  • Winter touring the sights, such as the one shown in the picture and look at the nails what was worried and rather nice sights more by this winter, I guess. Why not just look at the waterfall is called "white beard. If you just want this non-travel plans. Recommended!

  • Nice waterfall near onsen hotels, however only can be observed from the bridge, rest of areas are off limits. (Or were when I visited end of November). Cool to see the steam when all around is covered in snow, and colour of water is just stunning blue/turquoise.
  • An amazing place to visit especially for photography lovers and families. There are some onsens and restaurants nearby so consider this place a good choice to visit and snap photos for people stay nearby.
  • Amazing place. Would be nicer if we can get closer..
  • Is a small waterfall that can be beautiful if not for the bridge just next to it
  • Stunning view in winter.. But it's cold 😉
