This famous waterfall has been repeatedly featured in short literary works and verses by great haiku poet s including Masaoka Shiki and Natsume Soseki. Located in Saragamine Mountain Range Prefectural Natural Park, this majestic waterfall cascades a distance of 96-meters. Parking facilities, an esplanade to the waterfall, and a viewing platform make it possible for anyone to visit. The Shirai Falls Festival is held every year on November 3rd, and with the nearby trees dyed in autumn splendor, mochi dumplings are tossed to the crowd while local produce is available for purchase. During the winter the entire falls freezes over, giving it the wondrous appearance of an ice sculpture.
