Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web
Walk across the planks of a 17 m (55 ft) high suspension bridge on a nature trail through a pristine forest to see Hiji waterfall, an impressive 26 m (85 ft) high waterfall nestled in greenery. Observe colorful robins, lizards, turtles, butterflies, and small snakes in this jungle-like setting on the winding 3.3 km (2 mi) hike. Admire the magnificent vegetation surrounding you as you follow a stream with cascading rapids, ending in a pond beneath the falls. You can't swim in the pool, but can have a refreshing dip close to it, soaking in the tranquility of the constant, soothing sound of the falling water. You can park in a designated lot at the beginning of the trail. Use our Kunigami-son vacation builder to arrange your visit to Hiji waterfall and other attractions in Kunigami-son.

  • I hiked this waterfall with my 6 yr old and my husband. There are a lot of stairs, so I would say you need to be able to walk a good bit. I will be living in Okinawa for a few years so I would say tha...  read more »
  • was only one and a half kilometers, but the road was rocky and steep in places. The Japanese are quite cautious and everywhere have set steps, fences, rope bridges, so it was fun. The way was quite picturesque and not like yesterday's forest stroll. Vines, birds, River, ferns, butterflies, birds and clear water. Describe the nature, as well as taking pictures-it is possible, but pass it paints and sounds is impossible. Quite often met a group of young people accompanied by guides. I noticed that explore the nature of prerogative or Japanese craze is, while men choose something more passive, and today's observations were confirmed.

  • 4:10 is headed at nobi district falls on the day has arrived. again, to close at 4, buried the next day morning 9:00 open! They arrived at different destinations a little set in Google Nabi head needs attention! Erect on the left is the last to arrive intact head straight at the campground. Admission is 500 yen per person (adult). JAF card seems to discount some. When you enter the waterfall has last toilet and vending machines. Well-maintained road to the falls, can be selected on the road at two points. Also normally live in a big city, so no matter how much maintained road and continued to advance and pounding on the insects and birds. The sound of running water and plenty of insects and birds chirping pleasures of nature, not to feel in the city! To climb stairs, and shortness of breath while finally arrive to the falls. Can arrive at sweaty was near the waterfall is so cool and a negative ion and athletics and was very nice. From the waterfalls from the campground to 30-40 minutes. Was passed even some families with small children. It was felt that once in a while these natural touching is important.

  • A nice, pleasant hike to a pretty waterfall. Only drawbacks were the entry fee (500¥) and that the waterfall access was cordoned off. Kind of silly they won't let you get closer.
  • It's a nice walk. And that is about it.
