Shiraito Waterfalls(Karuizawa)
白糸の滝(軽井沢)

MAPCODE for car park : 292 851 679

There are many waterfalls in Japan named Shiroito Waterfalls. Shiroito means white thread, and in Japan, such waterfalls are called Shiroito Waterfalls because countless waterfalls flow down like white threads. Shiroito Waterfalls in Karuizawa is one of the top Shiroito waterfalls in Japan. The waterfall, which is about 3m high, continues for about 70m while drawing a gentle curve, so you can enjoy a very beautiful appearance. The mountain slopes above the waterfall contain a volcanic stratum on which groundwater flows before surfacing here. This explains why no river flows into the Shiraito Waterfall. Also, as only a small portion of the water flowing is rain water, the strength of the flow stays relatively constant independant of the weather. The transparency of the water you see while bathing in negative ions is also wonderful. Immediately below the Shiraito Waterfall is a secondary waterfall that is shaped such that water cascades over several steps. A fantastic light-up illusion by projection mapping is held every summer for one month. In addition, every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from the beginning of February to the beginning of March, you can enjoy the "Icicle Shiraito Illuminations" in the parking lot under the shop.

Advice:
Shiraito Falls is located along the toll road "Shiraito Highland Way", and a one-way toll of 500 yen is required.

As you walk along the gravel-lined promenade, wear shoes that are not slippery and easy to walk on.

About 25 minutes by car or 13km from / to Karuizawa Town.
