Ground water spills over the 70m arch of Shiraito Falls in hundreds of delicate, white strands. A natural oasis in the heart of Karuizawa’s woods, Shiraito Falls is a refreshing and tranquil place to spend in the hot summer days. As autumn approaches, the nearby maple trees turn brilliant shades of crimson. And in winter, the falls freeze in place and are illuminated during the evenings.
