We have visited this orchid farm and gallery several times while en route to the Volcano National Park. One time, though, we made a special trip here just to visit it again. There are more varieties of orchids here than I ever knew about or imagined existed. There is a display are and then a part of the "gallery" that... More

We stopped on a tour and wandered around the grounds smelling and looking at various plants and flowers. A very nice, peaceful place to wander!

Stopped here on a tour on the way to the National Park. Absolutely beautiful plants! I love orchids, but I tend to over-water and kill them. One of the women working there took at least 10 minutes explaining orchid care to me, troubleshooting what I've been doing wrong. She gave me lots of pointers and not once tried to sell... More

We stopped on our way to the National Volcano Park to see orchids and make purchases. Somewhat disappointing, as we saw some orchids but then were expected to pay to see the rest. I did purchase two orchid plants and requested they be shipped back home. The personal service to assist with purchase and shipment was excellent. Friends who accompanied... More

If you're on the way to Volcanoes National Park, take a while to stop at Akatsuka Orchids a few minutes outside the park. Definitely worth the visit, it's a huge greenhouse filled with incredible types and colors or orchids (the vast majority) and other plants. It is also a stop on many island tours, as evidenced by the buses often... More

Stop was part of a tour that took us to the orchid gardens. Had many types and varieties to look at and for a few dollars you could go into the "better" section with orchids. Not sure why they do that....we chose not to pay. Nice gift shop and restrooms available. Lots of photo ops of gorgeous flowers.

The orchid gardens has a maize and lots of orchids including a rare $20000 orchid. The gift shop is very nice.

We went on the orchid tour with Nate and had a wonderful time. Nate took the time to fully explain the history of Akatsuka, the nature of orchids, and all of our questions about growing and caring for orchids. The ice cream at the end was a neat feature too. We highly recommend the tour if you're a plant enthusiast... More
