[Shiragane Falls in Ishikari] Splash of Falls Looks Silver Color
Shiragane Falls (白銀の滝) is a famous waterfall at Cape Ofuyu (雄冬岬) located in the northern part of Ishikari city. In Shokanbetsu Teuri Yagishiri Quasi-National Park (暑寒別天売焼尻国定公園), it is relatively near Ofuyumisaki Observation Deck (雄冬岬展望台). The waterfall drops along National Route 231 (Ororon Line (オロロンライン)), and was named the Shiragane Falls as opening the road memory in 1981. Water drops around 30 m into the sea. The waterfall is named after the splash that used to look silver color. The whole waterfall could be seen from the sea before building the road, so I suppose that it looks beautiful. By the way, Beware of Pit vipers. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. A restroom is built beside the parking lot, too.
