This was a fascinating tour. A very personable tour. Fun and educational. Do not miss this even if you are not an orchid enthusiast. The entire staff is wonderful. R

“Wether you are a collecter or not this place is a must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Each time we travel from Australia to Hawaii we never miss Akatsuka's. I am fortunate enough to hold an import permit so am able to bring these beautiful orchids home in flasks and share them all around Australia. If you are on the Big Island please visit you will not be disappointed.

“A must if you like orchids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Still a nice place to visit, even if you aren't particularly in to orchids, but if you are, it's fantastic! We paid for the tour and learned a lot about the care of orchids (and got a couple of free orchids at the end of it. My wife (the one who's really into them) also bought a bunch more. They shipped them to our home after our vacation was over and everything arrived in great condition. It is very much a family run business and everyone was very friendly and helpful. They even offer to be a resource you can contact if you have problems with your orchids.

“WOW! Lots of Orchids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

My wife and I live nearby, so we pass by quite often. We stop in now and then to check out the selection. However, we ALWAYS take visitors there. The variety and quality is almost overwhelming. Always a high point of everyone's visit.

“october 2013”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Have travelled to the Big Island many times and have passed by the Akatsuka Orchid Gardens. This time we stopped and were not disappointed. What a lovely and numerous variety of beautiful orchids. The $20,000.00 dollar orchid was not in bloom, but I bought a postcard to share with family. Don't drive by....stop and enjoy the beautiful orchid display.
