You'd probably spend about 20-30 mins here just to take pics with friends/family. The falls is beautiful, the clear water and the atmosphere is nice.

The view is only up from a pretty high bridge (I'm afraid of heights and did not expect it would be that high!). Bare in mind that the attraction is just to view the beautiful waterfall from afar. Despite the distance, my family (young kids...More

If you are already at Bluepond, it will be a good idea to visit Shirahige Falls. It is a pleasant waterfall to look at. There is a long staircase at the end of the bridge over Shirahige Falls which leads to Tokachidake Citizen Information Centre...More

This is nice falls close(3 km) from the Blue Pond. Shirahige literary means "white beard" in Japanese, and each of the falls are actually falling like "white beard". This is a place to come when you come to the Blue Pond in Biei area.

Shirahige Falls is not far from Blue Pond, and can be easily accessed without strenuous hiking to get close for a good view like many other waterfalls. We just drove close to the bridge and had our car parked conveniently at the roadside carpark. The...More

This waterfall is very near to the Blue Pond, so it's worth stopping by if you are in the area anyway. It was incredibly misty on the day of my visit and so the atmosphere was nice as the bridge overlooking the falls seem suspended...More
