Kamuiwakka Hot Falls, Shari-cho
(4/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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. For Kamuiwakka Hot Falls and beyond, use our Shari-cho trip builder to get the most from your Shari-cho vacation.

  • Tourist season is indeed increasingly crowded with people (-_-;) I think it better to experience nature, if he went once. Don't think so just walk for the elderly and lower it. I have naturally been go, I thought.

  • Currently over setting car restriction period. I think looking at sore eyes go from the Tourism Association home page, check well in advance. Location because it was out-of-control car, shuttle rates are quite high. Considering the cost-effectiveness is a little questionable. Was understand that a local accident happening every year. You refrained from judging me with flip flops or bare feet and a climb in the river. (Tourist Association homepage for more information out) private socks that slip and climb if you previously learned how to walk in the climbing is required. Than would climb even now tepid Springs go and regulated dangerous is not. Were foreign tourists who had climbed on this day. Roads from the Shiretoko five Hu, kamuiwaka falls is unpaved gravel road (dirt). Are writing away wrong "2 Km" and at the bottom there is a properly "about 11 km". Therefore conversely motorists unaccustomed to or skip at the curve, passing each other at surface is relatively less gravel, but kinda scary. Without knowing if dirt gravel roads, skate to snow more than driving like it was. The deer without fear of people eating at roadside food was impressive. Do not feed wild animals is absolutely!

  • It is harder as you go through the mountain to the water falls. Foliage was beautiful because it was at the end of October. Noborete walking water waterfall and enjoyed it.
