Hike to Hiji Waterfall

Parks Overview Parks Overview

Trek to the tallest waterfall on Okinawa's main island and see local flora and fauna

Hike to Hiji Waterfall, the falls with the highest drop on Okinawa's main island. Gaze down from the 50-meter-long suspension bridge at the hike's midway point for aerial views of the Hiji River. Downstream, take a dip in the river's calmer section. Along the hike, take in sights of local vegetation, including flying spider-monkey tree ferns and irukanda plants. You may be able to spot endemic species designated as Natural Monuments, such as the honto-akahige, a variety of Ryukyu robin.

Those keen on camping can spend the night at the campground, open year-round. Neither rental equipment nor food is available at the campground, so bring your own tent and supplies. There are shared cooking areas, eating areas, and washrooms, as well as coin-operated showers.
