“No end to the beauty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

The variety of numbers and types of beautiful orchids is almost overwhelming, but there is not pressure from the very friendly, very informative staff. Remember to buy several small plants to fit into the shipping box with your larger plant--no extra shipping cost!

“Lots of Flowers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

I grow some orchids here in Florida but nothing like this. Some really pretty plants and unique hybrids. The staff is knowledgeable and willing to share. They also have a nice gift shop, I bought a volcano T shirt and clean restrooms.

“Well worth the money - its FREE!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012 via mobile

I've vacationed in beautiful, exotic Volcano numerous times and had never taken the time to visit AkatsukaOrchid Gardens until today.
The gardens were established in 1974.
I know less about orchids than I do automobile repair, but I certainly am able to appreciate the beauty and fragrances.
If you're driving highway 11 between Volcano and Hilo take a quick stop and enjoy the colors and fragrances that make Orchids beautiful.
If so inclined you can ship purchase or carry them to the mainland.
