“Amazing variety of orchids.”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Have never seen so many different orchids in one place. Our tour guide from Akamai Adventure Tours and Travel pointed out several unique patterns. Hope to order from their website in the near future. Large gift shop with quality merchandise.

“Orchid heaven!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

If you love flora and especially orchids this is Orchid heaven! It is a free attraction with their fair share of tourists. They have so many different colors and varieties of orchids. Don't miss the one of a kind $20,000 orchid in the gift shop! A must see on the way to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

“I Love Orchids”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

If you are like me and you love Orchids, take a moment to visit the Akatsuka Gardens. It has a huge selection of beautiful and unique orchids. What a treat just walking around and enjoying the beauty of this flower.
They do ship.

“Wow”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

If you want to be wowed by beautiful orchids don't miss this stop. It looks like tranparent greenhouses from the road and a lot of the greenhouses aren't open to the public but what is open is worth the stop. They had more varieties than I could have imagined. They sold them in all sizes. They gave all of us an ochid to wear in our hair. I thought the prices, less than $10.00, for Lady Slippers was great.

“A nursery with no pressure to buy”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Want to look at beautiful and unexpected orchids? This place will blow your mind! It is a working nursery, but if you don't want to buy anything, you don't have to. You can take pictures and sniff to your heart's content. Just watch out for the tour buses!
