Shiraito Falls, Fujinomiya

4.3
Gushing out of the foothills of Mount Fuji, and now part of the Fujisan Cultural Site World Heritage List, Shiraito Falls once gave rise to the Fuji cult. White silky streams of the 20 m (65 ft) high and 150 m (492 ft) wide cascade pour into a large pond surrounded by lush greenery. You will arrive at the falls from the top and see some food stalls, but you should also take a short hike to admire the cascade from the bottom. If you're lucky, you'll even see a rainbow. The falls are a 30-minute bus ride from Fujinomiya station, and also offer parking facilities.

  • What a beautiful cluster of waterfall. it is amazing to see the beauty attached to that where we really feel the miracle of the nature. One of the best location for photography. There is close access ...  more »
  • There are many shiraito waterfalls in Japan, but the white silk falls in the main house have a scale. It is also good to see from the top. It seems to have used it instead of the mirror with clean water, and the mind seems to be cleansed, too. It's quite far away, but the splash is amazing.

  • Astonishing view. It’s truly breathtaking. We drove around Mt. Fuji for a couple of days and saw it from multiple places but this was my favourite. The waterfalls were very pretty too - it creates lovely rainbows. The nature is lovely, the walk is good too. I’m sure the view would look different over the year (my visit was in early January, 2019)
  • Beautiful waterfalls and convenient access. Plenty of parking space around the area and it takes only 5-10 minutes to get down to the viewing deck. Definitely worth a quick stop over if you are driving.
