If the weather is nice, walk down from the aquarium to the Tropical Dream Center - beautiful grounds and a stone building that swirls up to a spectacular view of the Sea and Ie Island in the distance. The Dream Center is cool and breezy and has a beautiful variety of tropical plants and flowers. There are many pretty photo... More

This is located close to the Ocean Expo Park with nice tropical flowers on display. One will need to pay an entrance fee to visit but u only need to pay half the price if you have the aquarium tickets.

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!

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!
