Fujinomiya shiraito falls near mount Fuji（富士宮 白糸の滝）
Shiraito falls is a waterfall in Fujinomiya, Shiuoka Prefecture near Mount Fuji. It is part of Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park. And has been protected since 1936 as a Japanese Natural Monument. The Shiraito Falls is listed as one of Japan’s Top 100 waterfalls, In a listing published by the Japanese Ministry of the Environment in 1990.
Amazing place to spend with magnificent waterfalls. I visited there at autumn when the leaves were very colorful orange and brown and red.
The scenery and the surroundings were so nice and peaceful that we surrendered our self to nature. Since the water fall spans a pretty wide area, this place is perfect to take a scenic picture.
Total height of Shiraito falls is 20m and average width is 200m.
It is very convenient even if someone who is not that good in Japanese because, there is a well-equipped information center with English guidance and modern western washlet toilet (washlet is the product name of electronic toilets of TOTO corporation, however it is known as general name of electronic toilets in Japan.
) for you to use. There’re some nice and cute shops on the walk to the falls with local offering really great tasting ice cream and salted grilled fish.
I specially recommend not to miss to taste that ice cream and salted grilled fish for those who visit there since its mind blowing taste. Moreover, there are also many small stores selling souvenirs and different kind of food so that one can have fun with shopping too. (Please check with the store these foods are Halal or not) Overall, we enjoyed a lot and I recommend visiting this place.
