Have a picnic in the shade, and if you time your visit right, watch some hula dancing in the park. Stop by the Kamehameha V Cottage while you are there, once the home of Prince Lot Kapuāiwa, who became King Kamehameha V. Head to the gift shop before you leave if you want to purchase items with the Hitachi tree logo on it.

  • Locally known as the "Hitachi tree". Nemunoki is. Because for the photosynthesis will extends to the next like that. Gather the power of Earth from the Sun and the root stem is a power spot.

  • A small park but really well kept and very convienent to get to. Nice open green space for picnics, field games between friends and family (frisbee, catch, etc.) and a very short walk from a nice dog park and basketball courts. Beautiful old trees and some traditional Japanese style buildings. Large old tree limbs have been made into interesting places to sit and relax. $3.00 to get in but if the little gift shop is closed it is free.
  • Beautiful garden that can be a great place for photo shoots. It costs $1 for military and native Hawaiians to get in, $3 for everyone else. There's also a small parking fee if you use their lot.
  • Large field to play around in. Nothing fancy, but enough to relax and enjoy for the locals that live near by. Little gift shop.
  • Pretty botanical gardens with large monkeypod trees in an open field and fishponds and flowers around the sides. Famous for the "Hitachi tree" that appeared in Hitatchi TV commercials (in Japan). Lots of Japanese tour busses visit here. $3 admission fee.
  • Good place to let your young children run around lots play area.

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.
