Shiraito Falls, Fujinomiya

(4.3/5 based on 300 reviews on the web)
Gushing out of the foothills of Mount Fuji, and now part of the Fujisan Cultural Site World Heritage List, Shiraito Falls once gave rise to the Fuji cult. White silky streams of the 20 m (65 ft) high and 150 m (492 ft) wide cascade pour into a large pond surrounded by lush greenery. You will arrive at the falls from the top and see some food stalls, but you should also take a short hike to admire the cascade from the bottom. If you're lucky, you'll even see a rainbow. The falls are a 30-minute bus ride from Fujinomiya station, and also offer parking facilities.

  • With most major falls in Asia this place is first met by a row of tourist shops selling mostly touristy crap but once you have navigated your way to the entrance of the falls it's an absolute spectacu...  more »
  • It is a tourist destination and feel nature. It is about clean water of Mt. Fuji is flowing, so wanted to jump. I think 30 minutes stay fit.

  • I visited during wet weather. I went thinking it rains because no tourists, but truly was a famous tourist attraction, rain care staff were tourists. Water is much shiraito falls were quite impressive. Please note the parking fee differs depending on where. Properly look at price Park, we recommend that you want. More times than not. If you purchase at the gift shop of the Alliance in place of parking free of charge.

  • Good stopover during a road trip up to kawaguchiko lake from fujinomiya. Personally don't recommend to go there intentionally to the falls.
  • Beautiful place!!! Parking ranges from 200-500yen so park wherever is cheaper ;) We walked from the back of the Falls and the view deck was amazing! You could see the falls and Mt.Fuji at the same time :)
  • Beautiful waterfalls. Don't Park at the first parking spot. It is the most expensive one.
  • Nice waterfall. Not that big but it's a pretty one with clean water.
  • Beautiful falls in the shadow of Mt. Fuji. I can't wait to go back.
