Shiraito Waterfall (白糸の滝)

The Shiraito Waterfall (Fujinomiya) is located on the quieter western slopes of Mt Fuji, Japan and one of the most beautiful places in Shizuoka Province.


Shiraito Waterfall is a very wide series of percolating waterfalls and the water here is from Mount Fuji, flowing down via the Kaotou river.


Named the white thread fall, this waterfall is a beauty. Literally thousands of small streams trickle in a large arch from the rocks between the main flows, creating a vast white cascade nearly 200 meters wide (despite the vertical drop being only 25 meters).


The falls are particularly attractive in spring as the snows of the mountain melt and strengthen the flow.
