Shiraito Falls, Karuizawa


Shiraito (white threads) is one of the many waterfall systems in Karuizawa, a mountain resort town in Nagano Prefecture. It is only 3 meters tall but 70 meters wide.

It was still snowing when we went there. There was not much water flowing, unlike perhaps if it were spring or summer when the snow have melted. I guess a friend described the ambience quite succinctly: "sad".

Oo nga attorney. Napaka depressing naman ng scenery na yan. Is it because of the leafless trees and everything is either brown or white?

Napaka-serene nung mga picture. Ang sarap sigurong maupo doon at manahimik. Nakaka-relax siguro. :]

blogusvox: all that. add to that the fact na mababa lng ang bagsak ng tubig kaya smooth lang.
