Mt.Fuji & autumn leaves at Shiraito Falls

Shiraito Falls and Mt.Fuji
The Shiraito Falls are located in the southwestern foothills of Mount Fuji.
Hundreds of large and small waterfalls falling like many silk strings is very beautiful.
The 200m-wide and 20m-high cascade is fed by the spring water of Mount Fuji.
It was added to the World Heritage List as part of the Fujisan Cultural Site in 2013.

Shiraito means white silk in Japanese.
Because the thin white streams look like hanging threads of silk, it is called Shiraito falls.

You can take a beautiful picture by your smartphone from this observatory on top of the stairs.
I took the photo above without zoom by iPhone.
Rainbows can be seen between the morning and noon in the sunny day of autumn and fall.

Some people went under the observatory to take more beautiful picture.
(Basically restricted area)
I took some pictures at there, but it wasn’t good for me.

As I went down the stairs, there was another observation deck where I could see waterfalls right in front of me.
It was 10:30 and I could see a beautiful rainbow like an arch.
I took this photo with 1.5 times zoom by iPhone.

The rainbow moved to the right at 12:30.

You can go over the fence toward the waterfall.
But maybe it isn’t an official route, so watch your steps carefully.
