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.

  • Accompanied by, was asked by his daughter. The first had enjoyed good views, but the unexpectedly tight so far. You might enjoy along the river usually selects the Middle River along the course and was usually divided into courses, in midsummer. I did not know there is this spot in Okinawa.

  • I went there with my daughter (she lives there), we took the trail to the falls. There is alot of steps and bridges and walkways, and it says it is about a mile, but that would be on flatland! There a...  more »
  • Rent me when I went to take a position on your non-was not easy to find. I went up to the mountain, while h. Maeda barely barely went past the entry deadline for 5 minutes and cut the nails go in the end ... AO AO is operated on the duration of the winter season please check the times better visibility. And I've got a gaping at the entrance to the length should not go towards the mountain .... The only difference seems to be that if you note that

  • 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.
