The scenery is breath-taking!
Great writers such as Shiki Masaoka and Soseki Natsume visited the falls and composed a number of well-known Tanka (short poems) and Haiku about the scenery. The waterfalls are easily accessible via a footpath that leads to the perfect viewing location. A great number of visitors come to the Shirai Falls Festival on 3 November. The 96m tall falls freeze in winter when you may be lucky enough to see the mystical beauty of the gigantic frozen waterfall. Along with a nearby farm park, the falls are the perfect place to enjoy some amazing natural beauty.
