Shirahige Falls, Biei-cho

4.1
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.

  • The waterfall was beautiful but he mountains in the back were truly stunning. Did not expect to see snow capped mountains in the midst of summer. Great photo opportunities.
  • Mountains at the back ground enhanced the waterfall. To view frm the top only. Don't need much time here. 15mins enough
  • You'll be able to see the waterfall on your right, when you cross the tall pedestrian bridge. Skippable in my opinion, but some may like it.
  • Easy to access waterfall with blue water and an amazing mountain backdrop.
  • I was expecting to see waterfall in the autumn but It was snow that night. Anyway It's still beautiful. love the view.
