Shirai Falls白猪の滝

Waterfall

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.

          Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country's oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
