  • Opened in 1968, and the thing is, I first found out about, I went. Admission fee: adult 1,500 yen is senior discount was ¥ 1,000. As the impression than the Botanical Garden was tropical Park. For weekdays or less visitors, families of Chinese descent number of pairs and groups thought to be local and Japanese tourists were slightly. Tropical plant greenhouses, not seen in the alley is not unique to Okinawa. Height is about 25 m the archontophoenix alexandrae trees were spectacular.

  • The light show at night is the coolest I ever saw in my entire human life. When I was there it was Valentines day but it was awesomeness. I recommend seeing this place first before going to place like...  more »

  • Not too sure people are feeling that it is dated and rundown? We just visited and the grounds are well maintained and gorgeous. Easily one of the best botanical gardens that I have been to. The animals have shade and look well fed and happy, there is also a baby monkey that was just born in July. ¥1500 adult admission does not include tram ride, but the team ride can be easily added the to ticket. Next time we visit, I will definitely take advantage of their buffet, it looked amazing. Not much to eat if you don't do the sit down option but you are more than welcome to bring your own cooler, which is nice. We enjoyed the pool area, which was just seasonal and really up they decide to bring that back next year. It was perfect!!! Highly recommend the botanical gardens for 1.5-2 hours of fun.
  • Love to come here. Be sure to get the season pass. It is well worth the price for such a nice place.
  • Great place to spend a day! Totally love this botanical garden even though I can see some decrepit parts to the facilities. Staffs are all friendly and greets us everywhere in the garden. Credit cards available for admission fee. I recommend you to bring some yen if you wanna try workshop, fishing and feed animals, you can only use yen for these activities. Gerrato that you can buy at the souvenir shop tastes good :) 1 flavor cup Y400, corn Y450.
  • If you like nature, you should appreciate this place. Not really big and takes about an hour to walk through the two areas. Alexander palm trees are cool and the Za baobab treelasts for a 1000 years. Tons of lotus plants in the pond. Discounted $13 tickets through ITT on base. Ticket for an adult is 1800 yen at the gardens which is kind of high for this garden.
  • I took my parents here. They say, and I agree, it is the best botanical garden we have ever seen. I have also enjoyed the restaurant there for an office function. Very peaceful. Very good and interesting buffet.
