Hiji Waterfall, Kunigami-son

4.2
#3 of 13 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.

  • First, if you want to visit this place, go to the entrance at Hiji Campground! Buy a ticket at 500yen per pax, it is worthy, they need to construct the bridges and steps for easier walk/hike. We hike slowly and took pictures. The hike trip took us 2 hours (go to the waterfall and return). You can buy drinks at the machines in the campground.
  • What a wonderful walk and stair climbing to take just to see this beautiful waterfall and its scenery. I would recommend not trying go for a swim due to the fact if you get hurt out there, it will be difficult to get back. It cost 500 ¥ per person, it cost a little less if you go as a group.
