The Nanataki Waterfall in Hachimantai is about 80% frozen now! Hopefully in another few days it will be completely solid!
I was able to hike out there today to check on its progress. Another beautiful day with fresh powder snow covering the forest. It took about 40 minutes to walk to the waterfall without snowshoes, but probably will take an hour if you wear snowshoes.
This weekend and the following weekend will probably be the peak season for people visiting the falls. Don’t miss this stunning natural work of art!
In fast, you can visit this frozen waterfall with a guide that will explain other interesting stories about this natural area here!
