With young kids, this place allow us all to hike for a very short distance and sightsee st the same time. Worth the time tbh coz the place is cool, though the path could be quite dangerous and slippery at times, especially after a shower!...More

Gin Ga No Taki Falls also known as 'Milky Way Waterfall' is situated at the Daisetsuzan National Park. The waterfalls run down gracefully like thin delicate white string.

What impressed me most about this water fall is the way it looks when the water falls. It does look like the galaxy (Ginga) silvery in colors.
