Shiraito Falls

Shiraito FallsMount Fuji mapShiraito Falls is located about 10 km north of central Fujinomiya city.
It is at the west-southwestern foot of Mount Fuji.

The water falls from the interspaces of lava bed. Melted snow water on Mount Fuji penetrates through the ground, then the water comes out here after many years.
It is designated as a national natural treasure.

The waterfall is about 20 meters high and about 200 meters wide. And the rock wall is curved.
The falling waters look like many hanging silken threads. "Shiraito" means "white thread".
