Enjoy at Shiraito Waterfall

Want enjoy at waterfall? Shiraito waterfall is one of the best options. It is located in the forests north of downtown Karuizawa. The mountain slopes above the waterfall contain a volcanic stratum on which groundwater flows before surfacing here. This explains why no river flows into the Shiraito Waterfall. Similarly, as only a small portion of the water flowing is rain water, the strength of the flow stays relatively constant independent of the weather. In this article, I am describing about Shiraito waterfall.
