Hiji waterfall, Kunigami-son

(120+ 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.

  • The hike was long, but totally worth it in the end! The waterfall was so beautiful. Very soothing and easy trial.
  • 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.
  • 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.
