We went here after our visit at the aquarium.. It was a very hot day but we enjoyed the beautiful flowers and more that was offered here. We were all glad we went had such a good time. This is very beautiful to see.

The location is Motubu in central okinawa away from Naha but well worth the trip. The center is part of a park that has Churaumi Aquariun and many other attractions. The Display of Orchids are breath taking and the many rooms you pass through have independent tropical thems. Good place to sit and absorb the natural surroundings. There is a... More

It only took 5 years for us to finally visit this place. Definitely a must to get away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy nature. Perfect for family photos, taking family and friends to go visit, and for photographers. Although we took it slow I would recommend planning to visit the Butterfly Garden just up the block since one... More

this place was fantastic. Walk up the spiral tower for great views. The place is right next door to the Churaumi Aquarium and a must-see for orchid lovers. Both can be done in a half day. A bonus is a view of Ie Shima of WWII.

I came here while visiting Okinawa with family. If you enjoy natural beauty with plants, flowers, and gardens, you will love this. It was very well taken care of and set up beautifully. All of the plants were very interesting and beautiful. Even in the restrooms there were beautiful plants/flowers in vases. On site there is a very cool winding... More

I truly appreciated the variety of gardens, plants, and gorgeous views. This trip was not for everyone in our family, but I adored the visit. The gardens are extensive, amazingly well kept, and well labeled. The view from the spiral tower is breath taking.

Instead of the visiting the acquariam at the Ocean Expo Park, we chose to spend our time visiting this floral paradise. Orchids of all kinds of colours greeted us. Don't miss the souvenior shop on your way out and check out the stained glass ceiling.
