Feel the clean Shirakami water spritz on your face at these local waterfalls.
The Shirakami area has a number of hidden waterfalls. Below are a couple of “see it for yourself” spots:
Located behind a small shrine, this waterfall is a short drive from the Shirakami Sanchi World Heritage Conservation Center and Hotel Yutoria. Enjoyable all year-round — dip your feet in its waters in summer, enjoy the vibrant leaves in autumn, and see the water freeze over in winter. Parking is available on the premises.

The jagged rocks come together to create a rounded, cave-like dome from which water plunges 18 meters. Also situated near the Shirakami Sanchi World Heritage Conservation Center and Hotel Yutoria it is in a convenient location for those traveling around Fujisato Town. Parking is available at the end of the road, at Nagominoyu Onsen.
