We visited the gardens after the aquarium. You can walk or pay a small fee for the shuttle bus up to the gardens - its a nice walk. There is a separate entrance fee, but it is discounted with aquarium tickets. They have several botanical buildings and garden types but the best is the orchid house. Incredible walls of orchids...

What a well set out and presented tropical garden oasis with a surprise fish tank We didn't venture up the tower but the views are lovely so tranquil in the gardens We stayed in a boutique apartment just above the centre so walking distance to the gardens and aquarium

If you went to The Aquarium first you will get 50% off The entry fee. Inside is very beautiful and we found some good souveniers to take home with us. We took many great pictures of flowers and insects. If you have time stop by the Restaurant in the tower, the pancakes are to die for!

This visit was with my wife and to enjoy the beauty of the flowers. The Orchids are always special so many different genera and all in flower for your enjoyment. A multitude of colors and... More

The place is near by Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium. The aquarium is always full of plenty of people. But there were much less people in the Tropical Dream Center. I think most of people don't know the institution. There are three green houses and fine beautiful garden. If you visite Aquarium, bring the ticket, you can get the admission fee half... More

Here's a tip, bring your wives & girlfriends (Unless they dislike flowers) to give them a wonderful time! You'll probably end up photographer of the day! This place is a garden & there are several photo-worthy spots like everywhere!

We were lucky to come to this place when there was an exhibition of orchids. What a crazy amount of beautiful flowers. We couldn't believe our eyes!

We hadn't planned on visiting the Tropical Dream Center but we were able to purchase discounted tickets for the aquarium, butterfly garden and dream center together so figured "why not?" and boy are we glad that we went! The entire center is maintained in tip-top shape and the flowers are stunning. We visited during the International Orchid Show which was... More

Most visitors seem to overlook this attraction because the nearby aquarium and Ocean Expo is so popular. While the aquarium is indeed fantastic, the Tropical Dream Center truly deserves your time. While it lacks the pizzazz of leaping and dancing dolphins, it does have a quiet tranquility that could remain with you the rest of your life.
