He estimates the trek up to the falls takes about twenty minutes.

What I like to do (ahem-ahum) is pretend I'm a senior citizen and take my time.

Rocks, ferns, trees, deadwood, moss, and even muddy water, are all fair game, to me.

My camera and I consider those few seconds photo opportunities.

If you go on a trek to Hira Taki with me, plan on spending an hour traveling, each way !
