Kamuiwakka Hot Falls, Shari-cho

Hot Spring Waterfall
Warm yourself in Kamuiwakka Hot Falls, where a mountainside natural spring pumps volcanically heated water to the surface. Wear some sturdy shoes for your trip upstream, and bring along some towels and swim gear so you can take a dip in the pools. Take care traversing the potentially dangerous rocks; also note that the acidic water will sting your eyes on contact, and probably shouldn't be ingested.

  • Shiretoko five Hu came before going to the Park, from the ordinary road into gravel and fairly run. And quite often in the car coming back from the falls, dirt road driving is important. Sika deer on the way out, there was a mood. Was pretty steep climb it, so in the basin of Venice, take pictures only from the back. Cars are quite stained.

  •  Yet probably cannot speed because it is a gravel road that went 3:00 PM. Especially I am my car, so I ride carefully. Car rental is considerably speed running, it seems. However, it is surprised to see car arrived at the waterfall, ever defiled this car isn't much dust. To see many of you falls, see. Slip and falls 上razu I took only pictures from the bottom, but I hurt too when it's hard.

  • Shiretoko after the last road runs towards the tip of the Shiretoko peninsula. Need to wash back will run normally without worrying about any car becomes muddy. Encountering deer during the wild taste out. Kamuiwaka falls before, this road is closed to traffic. It is for the protection of natural environment. To go ahead would have permitted. Gate is a Watcher. It is extent that enters the sulphur mountain climbers. Waterfall is like a waterfall, the water is not deep. Approach can be reached walking barefoot up sulphur mountain gradually improves the water temperature comfortable. Is not public vehicle roads during busy season, seems to be on the shuttle.
