Shiraito Falls, Karuizawa-machi

(3.5/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • Waterfall small but wide, and curious because the water flows out of the rocks, is a very nice, typical picture and very assimilated to Japan. The ride is very well kept, clean and very curious. If anything is missing more signs in English, most signals. Watch out for bears! Here if you have to follow the signs to the dw letter. Ti to volcanic looks by the way, the Asama-Yama is not far away.

  • I went in the summer. Could not watch calmly, and many tourists went to lunch at first, but went again in the early morning of the next day. There were very few people in the morning. Carefully take the pictures, was look dazed. I was impressed not man-made, natural scenery. It is a waterfall landscape that was spread out ago your eyes with clean water and great views. My favourite places.
