Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Hokkaido / Kamikawa-gun / Biei-cho / Shirahige Falls
Witness the raw beauty of nature at Shirahige Falls, where water graciously cascades down a mossy rock face. Mineral-rich water forms a curtain of whitewash, which falls down the rock face before revealing its cobalt blue color in the river below. Majestic views of the waterfall are completed by the Taisetsu Mountains in the background. If you're a keen photographer, bring an ultra-wide lens to capture both the waterfall and the nearby mountain range in your shots.

Beautiful waterfall with the same beautiful blue water as the Blue Pond down the road. You view the waterfall from a very high bridge and while the waterfall itself is lovely, I thought the surrounding view of the mountains and forests was even more beautiful. Worth stopping by for the views if you're in the area! Parking area was a little unclear.
These waterfalls are rather special as they came out from the cliffs. They made a spectacular sight when you watched them from the iron bridge. Everthough it's already spring, this place was so cold that there were still snow cover found everywhere. Making the place rather picturesque. Furthermore, the setting sun added more colours to the whole place .....it's mesmerising!
