This is not a huge waterfall but it is quite beautiful. It is a good place to visit combined with Blue Pond. There is another waterfall, Fudo no Taki nearby. We walked from Shirahige Fall through a beautiful silver birch forest, crossed the road and got to Fudo no Taki. From there we returned to Shirahige Falls (staying on the... More

We stayed at an adjacent Ryokan around 300m from here so had a good walk around the local area. The falls are indeed pretty and you can see the blue water created by minerals that then flows into the Blue Pond a few kilometres down stream. Best vantage point is from the bridge and if you are feeling energetic a... More

What a sight, the calm and serene blue pond is really really blue...in fact blue with a tinge of green. There were many senior citizens who were trying to paint the pond seated around the pond. It was a good experience and worth going for beautiful photos. And it is free!! Why not??

These fall flow into the "Blue Pond". The minerals create a light blue color that is stunning. You can best view the falls from a walkway over a bridge close by.

This is basically another stopover point and a place to stretch your legs. The waterfall is of the same blue colour as the lake in the pools and is attractive to look at, the bridge is very high and there are steps [ many,many of them] on the other side leading to a viewing point. I didn't attempt to climb... More

It's on the way from Sapporo to Furano, so it's a good stop over for a break. The walk is interesting and it's a good place for photography too !

This waterfalls is about 3 min drive away from the blue pond . Look out for the huge bridge on the left after visiting the blue pond. Just drive up to the bridge and park there . Look down from the bridge and voila ! Worth a visit if you are in the vicinity .

It's not far from the blue pond. It is nice and windy bridge and water fall sound from nature before you cross the bridge. It is so beautiful and worth to see it once.

This place is about ten-fifteen minutes from the blue pond. It is nice and windy on the bridge catching the waterfall. There is also a covered walkway towards the end of the bridge but there is nothing much, not worth spending time walking up the flights of stairs! There is a conVenience stall near the parking lot but limited bathroom... More

The waterfall is just a short drive from the blue pond. Thus it is definitely worth a stop over after the blue pond. The bridge over the valley is itself a marvel. The sight of the river and the waterfall is really a sight to behold. This place will take approximately half an hour.
