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.

We got lost in this floral paradise for hours. More varieties of orchids than I'd ever imagined. A special display of amaryllis was absolutely stunning. The views were worth the trip to the top. If you are in Ocean Expo Park, do not pass by this opportunity without going in to explore. Beauty abounds!

This is a great place to check out especially if you are spending some time at Ocean Expo Park. Enjoy trees, flowers and the beautiful view from the top of the observation tower. English support makes it easy to enjoy reading about the plants you will encounter during your visit. HELPFUL HINT: There is a fee to enter but you... More

This center is large; many varieties of plants and flowers. Very green area - well maintained. Stroll through the garden is so peaceful. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful place near the Aquarium, filled with fruit trees, lily ponds, and greenery. One of the prettiest places I've been on Okinawa during my 6 years here!

The Tropical Dream Center reminded me of springtime when it was cold and windy outside on a wintery February day. There are several large buildings with curving walkways, large enough to get lost in, and packed with all sorts of ferns and flowers. The buildings, while not exactly greenhouses, are comfortable and climate-controlled yet, they have an open atsmophere so,... More
