The sheer variety of orchids on display at Akatsuka's is astonishing. The staff is knowledgable and helpful and generously offered suggestions on how to address our reblooming challenges at home. Do stop here on your way to or from the Volcanoes National Park.

This garden has changed to a pay to view format. I suppose they had to make that change because they get so many looky-loos on tour buses. We have visited in the past which made this change uncomfortable for us

Nate, our guide, was excellent--personable and very knowledgeable. We learned so much about orchids and now appreciate them so much more. Ladies at the desk were equally personable and gracious.
