About the Falls

  Shiraito Falls is a beautiful waterfall that is spread out over a 70-meter-wide rock, from which curtains of mist fall. The spring water, falling like bundles of silk threads, creates a soothing atmosphere.

  Every year, you can enjoy a projection mapping show in summer, and illuminations of the waterfall’s frozen ice pillars in winter. The fantastic scenery has been added to the Japan Night View Heritage list. Please feel the beauty of waterfalls that you can see only at night.
