Went to the visitor centre just after 9.00am. The staff were very helpful with maps and advice - speaking some English. They gave advice about the unlikely posibilty of meeting a bear. We decided to walk to the falls and had only walked about 5...More

Visited when it was misty so we could not see the waterfall clearly but the hike was still very enjoyable. Surprised to see many wild deers as we walked! Note: The trail towards the waterfall is slightly downwards-sloping, so the walk back is somewhat more...More

A very pleasant 2km walk to the falls. Allow 40” to walk in winter. Do take care walking on the narrow pathways.

From the parking lot, it takes 30 mins to walk to the cliff if you walk slowly. You wouldn't walk fast with the amazing picturesque scenery en route to the cliff. Spring was a perfect time to visit this place as it wasn't very cold,...More

We took the first bus out to the Shiretoko national park, completed the full trail walk by around noon or so and then stopped by the visitor's center to do the trail leading to this waterfall. The bus timings meant that we had to hustle...More

Basically you can just walk out the trail but don't start too late. It will be completely dark after sunset. There are bear sightings in the area too.
