Kamuiwakka Hot Fallsカムイワッカ湯の滝

Waterfall

A waterfall that flows into the river from the active volcano Mt. Shiretoko Io, warms the river like a hot spring. Currently it is possible to walk to the first waterfall but beyond that is closed to the public. The area cannot be accessed by train, so visitors must come by shuttle bus or car. However, there are times when private cars are not allowed access, so be sure to check in advance. Every year there are accidents of people slipping and falling at the waterfall, so please take care and come prepared.

Hokkaido Main Areas

around-area-map

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.
