Golden week getaway...
May 2021
Stunning waterfall in a beautiful environment, a short walk from an extensive car park. A little bit of an anticlimax once you see it, however, well worth a visit.

Very unique waterfall
Nov. 2020
The waterfall is well maintained by the workers of the park. the height of the fall may be not what you expecting but i was surprised to find out that the water is coming from the soils around. Worth visiting.

Beautiful falls even in the winter
Feb. 2020 • Family
Visited on Sun, Feb 23, 2020. The snowfall around the waterfalls was absolutely beautiful. Not too many people, even being a holiday weekend. There’s also a great souvenir shop near the bus stop at the start of the falls path. We bought some local raspberry jam and maple syrup. Worth the trip up the mountain to see the falls and doing a little shopping. Dress warmly. The falls themselves were warm somewhat because of its basin shape but the rest of Karuizawa is bitterly cold and windy this time of year. The journey up the mountain was about 25 mins by bus from Karuizawa station and cost ¥720 yen per person, except for our four year old son. Would love to come back and see these gorgeous falls in the summertime too. But they were still breathtaking in the winter, to our surprise.

Arc shaped falls
Jan. 2020 • Couples
This wide arc shaped water falls of snowmelt from Mount Fuji located at Fujinomiya is part of Fuji Hakone Izu National Park. The cliff with hundreds of large and small water falling like silk strings is a sight of gentleness and peace.

Intriguing formation of waterfall
Nov. 2019 • Friends
A short walk into the woods from the main town, and you will be greeted with the most intriguing formation of waterfall seeping out from the rocks. According to the local info, the water source had to go through the rocks for about 4 years, and then finally came out as the waterfall. There are a couple of trekking routes nearby the waterfall as well. This place is quite popular amongst the tourists.

A slow drive of approx 25 to 30 mins from Karuizawa city. A must-go place as it's very instgrammable for those who loves gorgeous natural pics. Do note you need to pay 400yen to get to this place (worth paying for)

Crowded but decent view
Nov. 2019 • Couples
One of the most popular scenic site in this region, due to easy access since its just a short 5 min walk from the site entrance - expect lots of tourists so take your photos quickly. Just count 1 and shoot. Lol

Scenic bus ride to nature
Nov. 2019 • Family
We did a quick excursion by bus to the falls. Do ask for the bus schedule from your hotel and get them to mark out the various stops. This was very helpful.

The ride itself out to the falls was a bit windy but lovely. You pay as you get off. children are half priced. The driver is always patient and willing to explain or calculate for you. Do try to get on the express buses.

The walk to the falls was very short and manageable. It was flat and not too challenging even for little legs or people with difficulty walking or injuries. There are small stalls set up nearby at the bus station with yummy food and a small toilet.

A great way to enjoy nature in a convenient manner.

Beautiful spot in the forest.
Oct. 2019 • Friends
You can catch a bus up for about $5 then walk another minute before arriving at this picturesque waterfall. Not very high but worth seeing. There's an easy hiking trail - after some steep steps to the next bus stop.
Very pretty.

Worth a visit

This is a rather small place; not a grand waterfall. But it is interesting as it looks like the water just flow out from the rocks! Worth a picture.
