Hiji waterfall, Kunigami-son
(4/5 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.

  • Continue the walks up and down from the campground spend 40 minutes each way. Landscape changes and not get bored. Climb a waterfall is quite tight. After it rains because your feet muddy slippery. I think better shoes are designed depending on the weather.

  • Go lightly, but places up and down steep, I'm tired. But roads are maintained, so easy to walk. Subtropical nature firsthand arrived at the waterfall. So was.

  • Why doesn't anyone tell us it closes at 3pm. We drove all the way here with a traffic that is worse than a funeral procession at 15km - traffic jam for no reason. The usual speed limit is 40km normall...  more »

  • 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.
  • Just loved this place. A great place to get away from it all for a couple of hours. The walking course to the water fall offers two routes. We took the river route, which was so much fun. Definitely recommend the river route if you don't mind getting your feet wet.
  • This is a fantastic place to get out and take a long, uphill nature hike. At some points, along the trail and stairways, you actually, lose cell-phone capability. It's a great place, to view the endangered, Ryukyu Robin, as they live at those high altitudes. The sounds of the waterfall and scenery will refresh you, as you rest-up for the walk back down to lower altitudes.
  • 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.
