    To's taxi, back on the bus. Entrance fee at the entrance (3 was $? ) Pamphlet told me if you pay. Toilet. It is a large park. Only see trees. Did just that little Japanese. Deep river is dirty and sad place. Come again when you come again? It is a feeling. Surrounded by nothing but or. Return bus is quite far away! Walk the trail bypass the car through the area. A hot day without shade and is quite harsh. If you do not check in advance and return bus stop this! Behind this road cross of! And becomes uneasy. Or rather in advance like investigators have also so far how do I cross over! And no fear.

    Long awaited!? ︎ "this tree tree tree like what" in I went with my family. Trees and age-old had seen on TV, even "this tree cares what trees grow on trees-not seen wood ~ ♫" and instinctively approached the mouth of I in I. It was a good visit for me to return. Not just trees and stairwells is admission $ 3 demands are placed on even-!? also felt it was ︎, but this tree and maintenance care, Park would have fallen if not regrettable. The landscaped park on the mower had been. If! "This wood wood wood feel of what ~ ♫", at the gate of the Park stars ⭐ was ️ 5. (Lol)

    In the middle of 5/2017, visited on tour. May flower like time, monkey pod other than ginger flowers bloom was. I think it should be investigated in advance if you want to admire the flowers.

    Very nice place. Easy to get to by car. By bus or foot I would say try somewhere else unless you know your way around there VERY well. If you want to learn some history about that area there are plenty old timers willing and ready to talk story; for that alone its worth the trip.

    It's peaceful, nice park for a picnic and there's this Japanese tree that lots of Japanese tourists goes there to see beside seeing the park.

    A very beautiful place with huge amounts of open space. A great place to spend a while with the family.

    This is completely out of the way and many people (other than Japanese tourists) will possibly get here. It's known in Japan for the home of "Hitachi tree". It's a tree that the Japanese company, Hitachi, used in their commercials during 1973. It's now become symbolic of the company and for this reason, many Japanese tourist come to seek it out. If you're reading this and make it here, you'll find you're probably one of the few tourists who isn't Japanese.

    There was less here than I expected. Yes, it has a few really large trees that have become symbols for some companies, but beyond that there wasn't much to see.... basically you get more at many other locations in Oahu where there isn't an entrance fee.

Where to stay in Honolulu

Most of Honolulu's luxury hotels and oceanfront condos are located in Waikiki, the city's most popular neighborhood. Staying in this area keeps you within walking distance of one of the world's finest beaches, but it also means paying a bundle for your room and board. To avoid high rates and big crowds, consider the budget hotels outside Waikiki's busiest areas. Smaller hotels just a short drive from the city's beaches offer comfortable rooms and good food at a fraction of the price of their Waikiki equivalents.
