The Shiraito Falls (白糸の滝, Shiraito no Taki) are located in the southwestern foothills of Mount Fuji. Ranked among the most beautiful waterfalls in Japan, the 150 meter wide cascade is fed by the volcano’s spring water and flows off the edge of a 20 meter high cliff in thin white streams that resemble hanging threads of silk – hence its name. The base of the waterfall is easily accessible from the road via a walking trail in just a few minutes.

At more than 2400m, the Skyline Road is one of the 3 main route to the 5th Station of Mt. Fuji; the point where the road ends and the hiking begins. This stunning route takes you up the traditional trail, used by the Buddist monks who would start their journey in Fujinomiya before heading on the long walk up the the mountain. The course is a steaday 35km of climbing and while this is no easy effort, with the right bike and the right mindset, eventually you will emerge at the top and enjoy not only the views of Mt. Fuji, but all the way back down to coast of Shizuoka.

Our final day takes us within views of Mount Fuji as we snake our way around the coast before heading east. The hills loom and we face a few categorized climbs that take us through the middle of Izu and the town itself. Atami is close and after a beautiful smooth descent we arrive back on the east coast and ride the last few kilometres to Atami.
