Ryusei-no-taki (Shooting Stars Fall) and Ginga-no-taki (Milky Way Falls)流星の滝・銀河の滝


The cliffs alongside the Ishikari River continue on for 24 kilometers. The two most famous waterfalls flowing from the cliff are Ryusei no Taki (Shooting Stars Falls) and Ginga no Taki (Milky Way Falls). The Shooting Stars waterfall falls violently from a height of 90 meters while the Milky Way waterfall gracefully falls the 120 meters like a fine white thread. The falls are also referred to as male and female falls due to their symmetry. There is a large carpark on route 39 and a 20-minute walk with the waterfalls as a backdrop will lead you to the Sobakudai viewpoint.

Hokkaido Main Areas


Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
