[Shiragane Falls in Ishikari] Splash of Falls Looks Silver Color

August 27th, 2016

Shiragane Falls

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.

Look of Shiragane Falls

A bridge is crossed in front of the falls, so the falls can be seen there. Due to snow meltwater, the quantity of water increases from April to June, so visitors can enjoy the impressive waterfall. In a winter, the iced waterfall also has a good reputation.
