Hokkaido Sights

Kamuiwakka Onsen

  • Body Of Water/Waterfall

Fodor's Review

Kamui means "spirit" or "god" in the Ainu language, and there's something wondrous, almost otherworldly, about this tumbling hot waterfall on the north shore under Io-zan (Mt. Io, as in Sulphur Mountain). Hot water rushes down the mountain through a series of multicolor falls and pools. Wear shoes that can get wet as you will scramble up over slippery rocks to a couple of pools higher upstream; the park staff is there to help you up down and caution you not to go

much farther than the roped-off third pool. Access is by bus only from July to mid-October.
