Kamuiwakka Hot Falls

Hot spring water emerges from the side of Mt. Shiretoko-Iwo, an active volcano, and flows into a river, turning the river into a hot spring bath.

旅のメモ

Accidents caused by falling rocks occur each year at Kamuiwakka Falls!
Kamuiwakka Falls is well known and visitors come from throughout Japan during the season. It feels good to climb up the hot-water falls.However, this river exists in completely unspoiled nature and there are no facilities here to ensure your safety or comfort.
Climbing river gorges is a form of mountain climbing, and visitors who wish to climb the Kamuiwakka Falls will need to have basic knowledge and skills for climbing river gorges.

  • Walking in the river is slippery.
  • Keep both hands free in case you fall.
  • Do not climb higher than the No. 1 Falls.
  • Do not use any installed ropes that you might see.※1

※1 As mentioned earlier, there are no facilities whatsoever for making Kamuiwakka River easier to climb, but some people have installed construction ropes and other equipment at the falls. We cannot guarantee their safety. Rangers and other nature conservation personnel remove these items when they find them. Meanwhile, please do not use them if you see them.
※ Mobile phones do not work in the gorge. It will take at least 30 minutes for an ambulance to get there after it is called.
