Shiraito Falls Karuizawa Japan

Secluded waterfall in Japan anyone?

This is a new feature here on Todd’s Wanderings. Well, that’s not true, I have been delivering beautiful photos (pat on the back) for a while now. Travel Porn is the new name to this section and delivers visual stimulation from around the world each week (most likely Fridays when I’m not stuck in a backwater somewhere). If this doesn’t get you hot, bothered, and fantasizing about your packed luggage (carry on, roll on, backpack, whatever turns you on) you might not be a traveler…

Shiraito Falls is located in the summer resort area of Karuizawa in Japan at the base of the active volcano Mt. Asama (3 1/2 hour drive from Tokyo). Seventy meters of fine, silky, sexy strands of groundwater fall like threads from the rock face. I love a good waterfall in the hot summer months, and in the fall the trees around explode in hues of red, orange and yellow. Yes, it is as beautiful as the picture suggests, but be careful of the crowds in the dead of summer.

I usually post pictures from my travel porn box, but if you want to guest post with you own visual stimulation (any type of media goes) contact me and we can discuss.

  3. That waterfall looks just the kind of place to sit and watch the moving water and the trees – travelporn or not.

  5. Ooh, very beautiful! I can’t remember the name but somewhere east of Osaka is a place with some large number of waterfalls (like 64 or something) which is also gorgeous – that’s what this pic reminded me of, anyway.

    Porn doesn’t do it justice – extreme eye candy is what I classify it as! Thnx!
