Kamuiwakka Falls, one of Japan's most spectacular hot springs destinations, is off the beaten path, but well worth the hike. To get there, you must hike along a mountain stream, which will take you approximately 30 minutes. The view from the top, however, is spectacular. Here, you will be able to relax in warm pools of water in close proximity to the waterfall.

Is the road open in June?

Hello Steve,

I have been reading that the road up to the Park is closed to traffic until July?? I haven't figured out if this was 2008, or that iti is closed currently. I am coming to Japan June 10 and would like to know/...

Thanks. The Hot Spring looks very good!

The road is only open to shuttle buses between mid July and September according to current information. It's about a 10 kilometre walk down the track if you come earlier though so if that's not too far a walk you should be able to see the falls in June.
