Nice view at the end, way to many steps. Did this hike with my wife, 7 and 2 yr old.

Was a good hike. Have two options. River route or trail. We did river. Bring water shoes! Lots of stairs but all worth it for the view. Took about 25-30 mins to get to the falls. It was a hike to say I’ve seen it and done it, probably wouldn’t go back. Cost 500 yen to get in too.

This was the first hike we did on island and it was great! There’s a private parking lot for the hike and you need to pay per person to hike. Its not too long at least for myself and kids, the trail is very well kept and the waterfall is beautiful! Only downside is you can’t swim in the pool/waterfall.

For this trail being an easy trail sure showed me how out of shape I am! Did this in flip flops and with a baby on my back. You have to pay at the trail head just a couple hundred yen per person but they only take yen! Worth the trip for the view at the end.

We did this tour in December. Very fun hike for all ages and skill levels. There is an optional fork in the path near the start of the trail to walk alongside the riverbed instead of the mostly paved, dry path - but you need water shoes for this, not sneakers. The trail takes 1 hour round-trip. Follow the many road signs to get to the trail head, or key in the GPS code 485771741 if you have a rental car. At the trail head, there are wooden cabins (to pay the entrance fee), toilets, wooden cabin and a campsite.

Good hike, waterfall was awesome. Lots of stairs. Didn’t realize it would cost yen, 500 per adult 300 per child.

Waterfall is totally worth it. I even swam in the water which isn’t allowed apparently but seems like every does it any way. Extremely dog friendly and a easy hike. My mother in-law did it with a boot on for a broken foot. She is 50 something, so that should say something besides she is a beast lol

Great trail with many steps. I walked it with sandals on with my wife and kids 7 & 5. They loved it. While I call this a walking trail, my wife calls it a hike. Cheers.

Not too bad! You can get to the Waterfall in like 30-45 minutes if you don't stop. Water is nice and cold and super clear. There's a lot of steps you need to climb. Beautiful place to spend a Saturday afternoon.

This is a nice trail, lots of steps. However it doesn’t allow pets. So don’t bring your dog they will turn you away.

It's great if you just walk up the river itself the entire way. It's only a few inches deep and a couple parts where it is waist deep. My 14 year old and my dog loved it. Going back tomorrow with the 10 year old.

It was a very well kept trail perfect for a family stroll

I liked it better 20 years ago when you had to get wet and pull yourself through the jungle.
