After one hundred hot onsens all around, this is good to go, walk on the rocks (not so much danger if you take care) and then swim in the little places which are warm but of course less hot than the onsen.

Watch out, it's slippery, although incredibly, many young folks were traipsing up in flip flops, crocs, bare feet! There are several sections to the waterfall – you drive right up to the base, park your car, climb up a steep small slope, strip your boots and then walk up directly on the flat rock sections that make up the waterfall. Climb up one or two sections and you reach a small pool, after this it's a steep climb that we didn't do (but that many others did, coming down with great difficulty, a few squeal, but all safe, unbelieveably). I don't think I'm that sure-footed, so gave that a miss, and still managed to almost slip on an algal rock on the way back down!

The rock you walk on is smoothened out from the waterfall, and interestingly, looked like purple granite with white seams. Fun and one-of-a-kind experience. We drove out back the way we came, which was a shame – we later figured out that if we had continued driving down the road to the end (towards the Shiretoko Peninsula), this was prime bear watching road – which explained why they were giving out bear safety leaflets at the carpark.
