Shiraito Falls, Karuizawa-machi
(3.4/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
See an impressive natural feature at Shiraito Falls, a wide and pleasant waterfall located within a national park. Considered sacred during the time of the Fuji cult of Shintoism, the waterfall stands out as a scenic highlight of the park. With a width of 150 m (492 ft), the main cascade drops down the face of a cliff in thin white streams. The falls themselves have a hidden-away air, thanks to an array of greenery shielding them. During your walk up to the falls (just a short walk from the road), you'll see several stalls selling a range of souvenirs and snacks. Take a look at our Karuizawa-machi itinerary builder to schedule your visit to Shiraito Falls and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Shiraito falls called name as more white yarn Warp to on and down to that landscape. You can look up at the falls if basin is spacious and carefully take off. Takiguchi entrance is narrow because large numbers of tourists and to wait. Signs in the old Miyamoto Musashi in all over the country martial arts training has stopped by this location and were described. Shiraito falls and any related training?

  • It was a really beautiful waterfalls, such as silk, bruised or. Climbing a mountain pass from Karuizawa is, is the crowded parking lot.
