Click here if you would like to read an overview of my 3 months wwoofing experience in Japan.
I'm a huge fan of waterfalls, so when i found out about how gorgeous Shiraito Falls is, i just had see it.
From my host place (Shizouka Wwoofing) at Mochimune Station, i took a train to Fuji Station and then transfered to Fujinomiya Station. It took me 1hr 13mins, and cost about 970 yen. From Fujinomiya station, i took a bus to Shiraito Fall which cost about 620yen 1 way. There are lockers at Fujinomiya Station which cost about 500 yen each. The tourist information is right below the train station, opposite the bus station. You can get the staff there to tell you exactly where to catch the bus. It takes just about 20mins to get to Shiraito Falls.
The first thing you will see when you arrive, and then....
The first massive waterfall, and then....
Japan being japan, there are nice pavements and stairs there; barricages too for safety reason. It feels so different from my waterfall adventure in Vietnam. haha.
Yes, you can see Mount Fuji from there.
I heard it's even nicer in Autumn, when the leaves turn orange and red.
There is another place in Fujinomiya that i was very keen to go - Lake Tanuki, but i didn't have enough time. Fujinomiya is definitely a place worth exploring, i probably only touch the very surface of it. I hope you get the chance to explore around the area or even hike mount fuji ;)
