The Otodome falls, known as a legend of the Soga brothers, appears first alongside the charming old-fashioned souvenir shops. Please stop by and read the explanatory board telling the origin of the fall’s name.
After leaving the Otodome-falls, if you hike down steps at the end of the souvenir shops, a magnificent view of the Shiraito Falls will emerge. The waterfalls is added to the World Heritage List as a part of the Mount Fuji cultural site. In addition, this picturesque cascade, one of the most important tourist attractions in Fujinojiya, was selected as one of the `Japan’s best 100 waterfalls’ (ranked the third in 2015)
The striking feature of the Shiraito falls is that it is made up of hundreds of waterfalls dropping from a curved cliff. Its source is groundwater from Mount Fuji. The maximum volume of water flow reaches 1.5 ton per minute.
