Shiraito Falls

We've been out of town for a couple of weeks on one last hurrah before we move in August. I hope its not the last but I have a feeling life is going to get busy with all the changes soon to come. Our trip was to Hong Kong, Siem Reap, Cambodia, and two locations in Thailand. I'm starting with a short day trip we took just outside Tokyo. We went to go see a phlox flower field near Mt Fuji but after driving almost two hours from where we were staying we found out the flower fields weren't open for another week! The area surrounding Mt Fuji has plenty of other things to do; we ended up visiting Shiraito Falls which was just another 15 minutes away.
Look at these amazing cherry blossoms!
A clear day's view of Fuji.
Shiraito Falls. We definitely weren't expecting this, the pictures online just didn't make it seem as grand as it is.
I was trying to let Rayce just explore but pretty confident that he was going to fall in any second.
These are the kind of places I could stay all day, but ice cream was calling to the kids. This was a great start to our trip. If you're ever around the base of Mt Fuji, check out Shiraito Falls!
