フレペの滝 Furepe-no-taki The Furepe Waterfall

Jp En


The Furepe Waterfall located on the western side of a World Heritage site, Shiretoko Peninsula, in the eastern part of Hokkaido is a unique waterfall that flows directly down into the sea. The rain and snow that fell in the Shiretoko mountain area permeate into the ground, and then the ground water runs out of the cliff to form this 100 m high waterfall. Different from other waterfalls that continuously flow into rivers, this waterfall flows gently with a smaller volume of water, from which it is also called “Maiden Tears.” Why is this young lady crying though living in this magnificent nature’s bosom of Shiretoko? On a fine day, a rainbow hangs over the waterfall as if the nature and the sea of Shiretoko are trying to comfort this lady in tears.
