Shiraito Waterfall : 白糸の滝

70 meter-Wide Sylvan Waterfall

Eastern Nagano


Description

Groundwater flows through the subterranean volcanic stratum at the base of Mt. Asama, surfacing along the rim of a 70 meter wide curve. The resulting Shiraito Waterfall is unique in that is fed not by a river or stream, but by this groundwater. Although the falls are only 3 meters tall, their width along with the crystal-clear water, moss-covered rocks and lush forest setting make for a beautiful scene. “Shiraito” means “white threads”, referring to the graceful thread-like streams of water cascading down the falls. The vivid green of new growth in the spring, bright sunlight during the summer, and gorgeous colors of the leaves in the fall make Shiraito Waterfall popular many months of the year.
