In general this was a beautiful hike...lovely foliage, beautiful butterflies, birds, other wildlife, and a pretty waterfall. However, as others have written it was a steep hike with lots of up and down stairs. The heat and humidity only added to the effort. My son-in-law...More

It's about 2KM hike to the waterfall. You can either follow the riverbank or the forest trail. The forest trail can be quite challenging for somes as it consists of long staircase and steep gradients. Not a big waterfall.

I hiked this waterfall with my 6 yr old and my husband. There are a lot of stairs, so I would say you need to be able to walk a good bit. I will be living in Okinawa for a few years so I would...More

The hike to Hiji Waterfall is interesting. It basically follows a small river, and while the river remains at about the same level from start to finish, you still go up and down a bunch of stairs every few minutes. I'm overweight, so it was...More

I took a bus from Nago to see the Hiji waterfall - grab a bamboo stick and go into the forest. I saw huge butterflies, lizards and salamanders on the way in!
