Tropical Dream Center

Posted In: okinawa | Okinawa Blooms

Back in February I drove up to Motobu with some new friends to see #alltheflowers at the Tropical Dream Center. I’ve been wanting to go to their International Orchid Show and to see their tulips. We made it there a day late for the show and the orchid displays were coming down… but the flowers were still amazing!! Seriously prepare for flower OVERLOAD, because I couldn’t narrow the pictures down.

Anyways, the Tropical Dream Center is a secret garden tucked away in the midst of the Expo Park; next to the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium. It’s an arboretum with tropical and subtropical flowers, as well as fruit trees exhibiting more than 2,000 orchids year-round. You can see the swirly building from the road and be sure to go all the way up to see a view of the whole park.

                                   ^^ It was such a beautiful/clear day, you could see Ie Island perfectly!! ^^

                                                      ^^ this Cinderalla-ish carriage was so dreamy!! ^^

                       ^^ the last 2 orchid displays still standing after the International Orchid Show ended ^^

                                          ^^ funny enough.. this was the view coming out of the bathroom^^
