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.

Exhibits in very good condition. Interesting to see a wide variety of tropical trees & other plants. Answered my questions like 'Ah, so that is what cacao looks like!' And gave me surprises - cannonball tree, hmm, never heard of that. If you love house plants or tropicals, plan to indulge in several hours here.

Last visited in 2013. We visited the Tropical Dream Center on a whim. We were visiting the Aquarium, and parked far down thinking the walk would be nice - which it was. We passed it on our way up to Ocean Expo Park, and I grabbed a brochure. We wandered back after Ocean Expo Park, and went in deciding if... More

Well worth a visit. Interesting plant set out in a beautiful set of surroundings. Ideal to take in along with a visit to the aquarium, s stroll in the parks. Sit by the sea and take in the free dolphin show. A good day out on the north west coast Okinawa.
