“Place to relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

This was the last place we went to in Island of Hawaii before heading back home. This is a Japanese garden near Hilo downtown area. Good place to relax after an eventful trip to big island

“First place in Hilo I went......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

After my 5+ hr journey from California to the Big Island, and before my 45 minute drive from Hilo to Pahoa, to get to my hotel, this was the first place I went to visit in Hilo. What an AMAZING & peacefully Zen place to be after hours of travelling. Hilo itself is pretty tiny (compared to the Mainland or Honolulu), but the Gardens make you feel SO relaxed. Stress melts away, and it is a truly serene place. I found it to be utterly beautiful, and a GREAT start to my week on the Big Island.....truly BEAUTIFUL. Hilo itself is charming, but the garden is extra special. Don't miss it!

“A walk in the park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We enjoyed strolling in this Japanese garden, walking over bridges, rock gardens, and pagodas. Saw many fishes swimming in the ponds, and also couple of black crabs. What a lovely park. It is located on Banyan Drive, right next to the hotels. Maybe next time we'll remember to pack a picnic lunch. So the next time you're in Hilo, come and enjoy the gardens.
