Hiji waterfall, Kunigami-son

4.0
#3 of 11 in Parks in Kunigami-son
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. Add Hiji waterfall and other attractions to your Kunigami-son trip itinerary using our Kunigami-son trip planner .

  • We came here after visiting cape hedo. It's along the way on highway 58. Entrance fee is required. A small fee though. Abt 40 mins hike from the entrance to the waterfall. So estimate abt 2 hours here...  more »
  • This area in 2016 and I all the way because it became a National Park trekking and I visited. Have been some maintenance even for beginners easy to walk to walk, moderately high/low difference and walking can be assured. On the way into the downstream river area, stop by on my way home, feet a little cool down home is recommended. 500 yen admission fee is then easily and I all the way of enjoying the natural shimete personally Favorites is. Guides would do better if you would have enjoyed at your own pace, but you want to understand the nature of guided. In addition, to exposed skin and rolling branches and stones are maintained, but after the rain is mud, sandals and heels I think going in there shoes or lead to injury. Recommended sneakers will. I saw a woman some even boldly walking sandals with a heel that was so... indeed. So like can trekking guide is the next time I'm in want to trekking challenge is with.

  • Thunder falls in can visit tourist falls in Okinawa is one of the few. "Waterfall at nobi district" of the kunigami village, I want go to come. It was a spot not to be missed. Admission fee is paid from the entrance to the parking lot and go immediately there is Camping Village you can camp in child and family watching askance, just aiming for "waterfall". A steep hill, is a little difficult to young children, but also in a good education. Small approximately 1 hour and a half to go, and there was "waterfall scenery" on the left. That's great. Kai came including a Red Bridge on the way is good.

  • The hike was long, but totally worth it in the end! The waterfall was so beautiful. Very soothing and easy trial.
  • Awesome walk to waterfall.....you can choose to walk along the water for part of the walk
  • Nice hike. Came during bad weather and enjoyed the trail. If you decide to go make sure to have second set of clothes in the event you get wet/muddy
  • First of all, the waterfall are beautiful. You can camp there. You have to pay to enter but it's ¥500 max. Then you walk in the mountains between 45mins and an 1h, to arrive at the waterfall. There is places where you can swim a little. Bring your kids and friends they'll love it.
  • Well worth the drive and or one of the most serine places I have ever been. Take a break from drinking and the ladies and go make a few memories there. It is family friendly and has campsites. One of the best falls I've seen.
