Hiji Waterfall (Kunigami Village)

    Today, We extended my trip to Kunigami Village, on the northern tip of the main island of Okinawa. The first place we visited was Hiji Waterfall. The largest waterfall on the main island of Okinawa.

    To get to this waterfall, we have to walk a mountain path about 1.5 kilometers from the Hiji Otaki Campsite on. The path is well-maintained, although there is a fee. There are quite a lot of ups and downs, and there are many stairs. Still, it feels good to walk in nature. You can see plants such as hego (tree fern) and butterflies that are clearly different from Honshu. See the Kunigami Village website for details.

    The starting point is the Hiji Otaki Campsite. Here you will find the reception and information center. There is also a habu (poisonous snake) that was caught nearby!

    Along the way, there are plants unique to the tropics.

    There is also a suspension bridge along the way. It feels more like an exploration than a hike.
