Stopped on the way to view Kilauea Volcano. Nice little break, bowl of free orchids greets you and explains how to wear the flower. Beautiful flowers in the main store, can take an Orchid Walk for $5, I didn't do this. Great souvenir shop, all price ranges.

My husband and i visited here on our vacation to Volcanoes NP. I am a orchid hobbyist who never can get my orchids to bloom. The advice I received was worth the cost of admission alone. And my orchids at home are already doing better! The orchid maze was fantastic - so many to look at. Couldn't leave without ordering... More

Who wouldn't like to be here to see all the beautiful orchids and learn about how to care for them. This place is fantastic. Learning about orchids , how to grow and take care of them is entertaining in itself. And to realize that the plants can be sent direct to your home with all required inspections accomplished is a...

Although we couldn't bring any plants back with us from the shop, this was a most exciting place to visit. The plants are amazing and first class and the service was world class. The lady who helped us couldn't have been more knowledgeable and honest. Highly recommended to all travellers

Akatsuka Orchid Gardens isn't really a garden, its more of a store. The flowers are pretty but they are a bit pricy. In reality you cant really buy the flowers if your visiting as it would be difficult to take them home but you can place an order and have them shipped to your house.

The gardens are all covered, so rain does not deter you. There are many varieties of orchids I have never seen before. They are well labeled and some are even boxed and approved for carryon luggage. One on particular smells like chocolate. There is also an attached gift shop with nice items and reasonable prices. Check out their calendars and... More

My cousin and I came over from the island of Kauai for a mini vacay. Both of our moms love orchids so we decided to stop here and bring back a few orchids as a gift. Not only did we purchase a box full of orchids, but we got our orchids individually wrapped and ready for the plane. Customer service... More

This is a huge orchid growing facility, but it has the atmosphere of a conservatory. Quiet and peaceful, with so many different kinds of orchids to look at. I was amazed. Good gift shop, too.
