Shirahige Falls, Biei-cho

3.9
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.
