Overview



"Blink and you may think you're in Japan as you stroll through peaceful Liliuokalani Gardens, named after Hawaii's last reigning monarch, Queen Liliuokalani. Located on Hilo's Banyan Drive, this authentic, 30-acre Japanese garden was dedicated in 1917 as a tribute to Hawaii's first Japanese immigrants who worked in the Big Island's sugar cane fields.

This beautifully landscaped park features arching red bridges over fishponds, rock gardens, pagodas, Japanese stone lanterns and a teahouse. Views of Hilo Bay and Moku Ola (Coconut Island) enhance this peaceful setting. With so much to see, this is a popular park for families to explore while they're visiting the Hilo area."
