During these trying times, they are just asking for a donation to see their orchids. It is certainly worth a free will donation to visit the greenhouse and to see their amazing orchids. All shapes and sizes and many that have been cultivated right here. You can even buy orchids to take back to the states that are correctly packaged.

Made a short stop on a tour. Beautiful flowers. Can't believe all the different types.Over 20,000 different types. Some can cost $20,000. WOW.

This was one of the excursions that my husband and I choose to do while we were in Hilo, as I love Orchids. I found there were a lot of varieties that I haven't seen before, like the Chocolate Orchid that actually smells like chocolate. Very nice overall!

What do you do with two teenagers in Volcano, HI when it’s raining all day and everything is closing due to COVID19? Our Airbnb host suggested several things, one of them was the orchid tour. It was so interesting and cool!! Everyone there is amazingly nice and knowledgeable. It’s a 45 minute tour, so not too long. It includes ice cream at the end. If you want to purchase something, there’s a scavenger hunt for the kids while they wait. Definitely try the Tuk Tuk Thai food truck outside until 5pm that had fantastic food! I would highly recommend this tour.

At this store, you can see, learn, buy and get a history lesson about orchids and everything associated with them. The Akatsuka’s have
“invented” many new varieties of orchids. So beautiful, wish we could take some home . There is no charge to enter store and there is a large parking lot. Tuk Tuk Thai food truck is located in this parking lot.

Made a short stop here whist on our way to the Volcanoes National Park, during an Island Tour. Quite a little gem really, as the owners take a great pride in being a major producer and displayer of a wide variety of Orchids. Not really my cup of tea, but my wife really enjoyed it. Some nice aromas about the place, and decent gift shop. Worth a visit;on main road to Volcanoes

During the past couple years, we've stopped at Akatsuka Orchid Gardens on our way back from the Volcano National Park. They have a wonderful self-guided educational tour about orchids. The variety and beauty is amazing. Mary is terrific and I highly recommend the stop.
