My title may sound harsher than it implies so take this with a grain of salt. Akatsuka Orchid Gardens is housed in a big warehouse like building. It doesn't look like a whole lot when you pull into the parking lot but when you walk in, the place is huge! There are way too many varieties of orchids for me... More

From the outside this looked like any warehouse building but once you entered the displays of orchids were amazing. There were so many varieties some with fragrance and others without, The staff is very helpful in pointing out which ones should not be missed. They provided growing instructions and helpful tips. They shipped my purchases and they arrived in great... More

We were here 10 years ago on a tour of the Big Island and had to stop again. Staff was very nice and were happy to answer all your questions. If you are into plants, or even if you're not, its a nice stop on the way to Volcano National Park.

The tour is well worth the price. You learn intimate details about how to grow orchids and get to explore many varieties of plants. The nice surprise is that this tour includes tasting and many wonderful smells.

Beautiful orchids grown on premises and shipped anywhere. Great photo opportunities. Prices on the plants themselves are very good, but the shipping may put them out of range. Not unreasonable, just expensive. But worth the stop just for the beauty!

I have to say that this was one of the nicest orchid shops I visited while in Hawaii. They have a great selection of orchids. Most available in multiple sizes. The staff was extremely helpful. I would definitely go back.

Take advantage of the free tour and marvel at varieties of orchids you have most likely never seen before. Akatsuka is certified nematode-free by the state of HI; that means you can buy their orchids and take them in your carry-on luggage when you return to mainland USA. Or you can have them shipped if you buy the large size... More

Beautiful and unusual orchids and on the plus side, it was free entrance! Lady who looked after us was very knowledgeable and gave us some good tips on how to look after our orchids.
