2 waterfalls - Shiraito no-taki - with same name





shenyl
I visited Japan in 2006 April/May, and seen a waterfall known as Shiraito Waterfall.
But when I visited many web sites, they always reveal a different waterfall.

Shiraito means white thread.

This puzzled me for sometime. I just visited Japan, and make the effort to visit the waterfall often mentioned in the web sites. It is near to Karaizawa - and I was disappointed by the height of the waterfall - at most 5 meters, though it was a wide waterfall, that gives the meaning of White threads.

A few days later, I revisited the Shiraito no-taki near the Five Lakes (Kawaguchiko), and was again impressed by the wide white thread waterfall. The max height will be about 20 to 30 meters.

So in Japan - name of places can be very confusing, and even with the same name.

I hope many will be informed when you visit these 2 waterfalls.

With regards.
