Kamuiwakka Hot Waterfall, Shari-cho

4.3
Warm yourself in Kamuiwakka Hot Waterfall, where a mountainside natural spring pumps volcanically heated water to the surface. Wear some sturdy shoes for your trip upstream, and bring along some towels and swim gear so you can take a dip in the pools. Take care traversing the potentially dangerous rocks; also note that the acidic water will sting your eyes on contact, and probably shouldn't be ingested.

  • We were lucky to practically have the falls to ourselves. Shoes off and onto the slope of the waterfall to walk up. Water was warm not hot, rocks lookwd slippery but weren't. A fun activity.  more »
  • I have no choice but to keep running on a narrow gravel road in front of Shiretoko Goko. However, the river of nature is a hot spring, and it is really a hot spring though it is possible to go only to one waterfall now. I've always wanted to go to the waterfall since I was in my 20s. I am very satisfied! However, because i skate, I recommend purchasing a non-slip tabi at the nature center. I went there with a beasan, but i slipped and fell down, and when I got back to the car, I had a hill on my leg.
