Mt. Chokai has a special place in my heart. After living here for a year, Chokai continues to amaze me. One of my favorite parts has to be the waterfalls. Recently, a group of my friends and I got a chance to hike the path along the waterfalls. It’s a pretty easy hike to see the first two waterfalls. It took us about 20 minutes and it was relatively flat. I have seen a few people hike with heels. You can actually hike further up to see more waterfalls. If you want to be ambitious, you can reach the summit of Chokaisan in six hours. It would be great to come back here on a hot and humid day since the water is freezing cold.
