Shiraito-no-taki Waterfall | 白糸の滝, Japan

The Shiraito Waterfall is located on the quieter western slopes of Mt Fuji. Falling from a 200meters wide cliff side, these falls derive their name Shiraito (white threads) from the beautiful way they remind the viewer of strands of silk.

The water comes from Mount Fuji, flowing down via the Kaotou river. The falls are particularly attractive in spring as the snows of the mountain melt and strengthen the flow.
