I love Hiji Falls. I've completed this hike a half dozen times, both solo and with different groups of people, including kids. I have always been impressed by the natural beauty of the river, the falls and the surrounding jungle. This hike is pure fun,...More

Sadly, we didn't actually enter take the falls hike proper. By the time we got there, it was raining heavily and the hike didn't look particularly attractive. The habitat is gorgeous and relatively undisturbed there, so it's certainly recommended. I'm not sure what the issue...More

The hike and waterfall are pleasant and the surrounding area is gorgeous, but it is very easy to get lost in route. The hike has steep stairs and could be challenging for young children, seniors or others who aren't in reasonably good shape. THIS IS...More

It's a 20 minutes walk from the bus stop to the trail head. Hardly see anybody, other than cars passing by occasionally which can be a bit scary to go solo (maybe it's just me, since the area is supposedly rather safe). Upon reaching the...More

It was a nice little trek to get to the waterfall. Once there you can sit and have lunch and enjoy the view. There is also a trail that you can climb to get to the top of the waterfall. I wouldn't jump off of...More

Hike is beautifully kept, and many stairs to walk. Many butterflies, and creepy crawlers along the way. Bring lots of water and bug spray for the Okinawa humidity. One suspension bridge to walk across that may be a little scary for smaller children. Small fee...More
