Shiramizu-no-taki Waterfall is located in Hakusan National Park. The 72 meters high and 8 meters wide waterfall is designated as a natural monument of Gifu prefecture. The water running off the fall appears to be a milky white color, so it became known as "Shiramizu-no-taki" or the waterfall of white water. It is said that the name "Shirakawa-go (White River Old-District)" also came from the white water.
