Kamuiwakkyu-no-tako or Kamuiwakkyu Falls is one of the best destinations to enjoy hotspring and falls.
This place is definitely a must-include in your itinerary when you visit Shiretoko National Park.
Before, visitors are allowed to hike up the mountain stream and climbing minor waterfalls along. After the hike, a natural hotspring at the base of the waterfall is the reward. However, this spectacular section was closed due to the danger of falling rocks. Visitors can still enjoy the lukewarm water lower 140 meters from the river basin.
Other sights from Shiretoko National Park must be visited, especially the Shiretoko Five Lakes and Shiretoko National Center.
Shuttle buses operate between Utoro, Shiretoko Nature Center, Shiretoko Five Lakes and the trail leading to Kamuiwakkayu Falls, operational from August 1 to 25 and from September 18 to 22. There are no available public transport for the rest of the year.
Cyclists and pedestrians can also take the ten-kilometer road between Shiretoko Five Lakes and the trailhead to the waterfalls, from June 1 until late October.
The falls is accessible to public with no fees charged.
