Kamuiwakka Hot Falls, Shari-cho

4.0
#3 of 13 in Parks in Shari-cho
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.
