Why don’t you trek in Okinawa, Hiji waterfall?
I’m Nobu, I like traveling overseas and in Japan, visited 25 countries. I’ve got the license of the certificate English guide in Japan for 8 years.
I show you hidden Japan which you have never seen and heard of!
Hiji Otaki Waterfall
I went trekking to Hiji Otaki waterfall.
It is located in the northern part of Okinawa, Yambaru, it’s in the Yanbaru national park.
Aldo the nearby Yanbaru area is designated as a UNESCO natural heritage site 2021.
It is the tallest waterfall on the main island of Okinawa at 25.7 m and has an abundance of water.
The Hiji River, blessed with its much water volume, is home to a variety of plants and animals.
This is also a place where you can enjoy comfortable camping in the rich nature of Yanbaru.
And you can fully enjoy outdoor recreation.
Hiji Otaki waterfall camp ground
At the entrance of the campground, pay the admission fee of 500 yen(5 dollars).
Passing through the campground, you will walk along the Hiji River through the subtropical forest.
On the way, there is a suspension bridge to cross the river.
You can hear various birds around you.
I think you can enjoy a refreshing trek along the river, which is rare in hot Okinawa.
The waterfall has a lot of water and the sound of the water is powerful.
The trek takes about 40 minutes from the campground.
There are some ups and downs, so it is best to wear comfortable shoes.
