Shiraito Falls is a part of the heritage assets of the World Heritage Mount Fuji. The waterfall is 150 m wide and 20 m high. 1.5 tons of water flows down every minute. The spring water from Mount Fuji forms hundreds of large and small waterfalls producing a refreshing impression. The name Shiraito (white threads) came from the waterfalls which look like white silk threads hung from the curved cliff. It is designated as national place of scenic beauty and a natural monument.

White Waterfalls like Silk Threads
The snow that falls on Mount Fuji melts and wells up to form Shiraito Falls. You can go down to get close to the waterfall plunge pool and feel its power. It is a soothing experience to look at Shiraito Falls hearing its sound as it sprays water.
Waterfalls and Autumn Leaves
When it gets colder in autumn, the leaves change colors into red and yellow around Shiraito Falls. The maples and sumacs surround the fall with beautiful colors. The contrast of the rainbow over the fall and the autumn leaves is mesmerizing.
