Heritage Sites

Getting there

It is recommended to drive to Tataki falls as there is very little to no public transport from Naha to the north of the island. Just be noted that the car park costs about 500 yen. All you have to do is drive along the main road from Naha for about two hours. There will be a turn off and bam, you will be at the carpark. 

According to Google maps there is no available bus route to the waterfall. 



Route/Trail notes

Be warned, this is not an ordinary hike. You will not be hiking on land, you will be hiking through a river. From the carpark, walk up an old road to find a turnoff into a river. From here, it is all upstream baby. The water is never that deep, so it is possible to wade the entire way. Just be careful of rocks as they may hurt your feet. I recommend hiring watershoes from the carpark. 

After treading the water for a while, you will find a place where you need to do a short scramble up a rock wall. There is a rope here. Use that to hoist yourself up over the rocks. Then continue on the other side and be on your way to the waterfall. 

From there continue straight and you will be at the waterfall. You can't miss it.
