Waterfall Spots in Aomori Area

  • Anmon-no-taki Waterfalls
    Travel / Tourism
    Aomori Pref. Nakatsugarugunnishimeyamura Kawaratai Okawazoe
    Shirakami-Sanchi became Japan's first World Heritage Site in 1993 because it's home to a variety of rare plants and animals. Anmon-no-taki Waterfalls in the Shirakami Mountains consists of three cascades. The first waterfall at the top is 42 meters high, the second is 37 meters high, and the third is 26 meters high. A walking path and boardwalk connect the Anmon Rest Area to the first waterfall via the Anmon Valley Route, but since there's the danger of falling rocks in some spots, hikers need to report that they are using the trail. Advanced booking is recommended for hiring a guide to go with you.
  • Shiraito Falls (Aomori)
    Travel / Tourism
    Aomori Pref. Towadashi Okuse Oirase
    This is a beautiful place on the Oirase Valley where the water falls like white thread. The bitter cold in winter freezes it, and the resulting icefall is famous. This is truly a place to enjoy the mystery of nature.
  • Choshi Otaki Waterfall
    Travel / Tourism
    Aomori Towada-shi Okuse
    "This famous waterfall, seven meters tall and 20 meters wide, is located on the main branch of Oirase Stream and is the biggest waterfall on the stream. Because the falls' strong flow prevents fish from going upstream and reaching Lake Towada, it is also known as ""Fish-Stopping Falls."" There is a walking path in the area which makes it possible for visitors to get right up next to the falls."
  • Mirokuno Falls
    Travel / Tourism
    Aomori Pref. Sannoheguntakkomachi Natsuzaka Natsusaka
    This is a 30 meter waterfall surrounded by thick beech woods. The thin white strands of water running down the bare rocks look like thin somen noodles, earning it the nickname of Somen Falls. We especially recommend summer, for the rich green of the forest leaves, and fall for the beautifully colored foliage.
  • Kumoino Falls
    Travel / Tourism
    Aomori Pref. Towadashi Okuse
    A 20 meter tall waterfall located along Oirase Stream viewed as one of the most scenic locations in the prefecture. Of the waterfalls on Oirase Stream, this one boasts a particularly large water volume, and the sight of the water gushing over steep cliffs to cascade down the three stages of the falls is impressive and moving.

Aomori Areas

Centuries-old stories of samurai at Kakunodate and the remains of millennia-old archaeological sites including the likes of Isedotai invite history buffs to delve into Aomori’s fascinating history. As the most northern prefecture on the Japanese mainland, Aomori enjoys a cooler climate, which makes it a welcome escape from the southern cities for combining castles, art galleries, and summer festivals with the great outdoors.
