Reviewed December 29, 2012

It is conveniently situated on the way to the volcano and offers a wide array of orchids to view, smell and appreciate. Well worth the 15 minute stop!

They have the most orchids you will ever see. Great activity on your way to volcano-or after. Easy to find.

“Gorgeous flowers, easy access”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Akatsuka Orchids is easily accessed from the Volcano Highway right around the 22 mile marker. Many varieties you've heard of before and many crosses never even imagined before are delightfully displayed on varietal tables. Several sizes from starter plants to those in full bloom are available for sale. Akatsuka Orchids offers shipping services too. There's a lovely gift shop and convenient rest rooms.

“If you have time, stop here”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

I stopped there on my way to the airport and it was the worth to stop here to see a nice colorful array of orchids. You can have them shipped back home. There is no entrance fee but can get crowded when you are (un)lucky that a tour bus stops here.

“Not worth the stop”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

The place is big. There are a lot of Orchids, but I think your time can better be spent going other places.
Now, if you love Orchids, then that is another story.
