Queen Lili'uokalani Gardens -- Hilo, Hawaii

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The ornamental gardens are named for Queen Liliuokalani, a Hawaiian monarch, and dedicated to the many Japanese immigrants living in Hilo. The garden was created in the early 1900's and is said to be the largest Edo style garden outside of Japan. The garden is planned around the Waihonu Pond with bridges, pagodas, and stone lanterns lining walking paths. Trees, flowering bushes, bamboo glades, and acres of green grass fill the park. A traditional Japanese tea house stands in the middle of the park.
