Orchids are flowers that captivate people with both their diversity and their elegance. There are somewhere around 28,000 different varieties of these blooms, and the Okinawa International Orchid Exhibition appreciates them in abundance. The exhibition is Japan's oldest orchid event and has been running for over 35 years.
Along with the displays of beautiful orchids from both Japan and abroad at the expo, there will be numerous photo spots decorated with colorful flowers which are perfect for a fun photo opportunity.
Adult admission to the venue (counted as anyone junior high school aged and above) is priced at 760 JPY. Children below junior high age receive free admission.
The exhibition takes place at the Tropical Dream Center Botanical Garden, which can be accessed in around 15 minutes on foot from Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium. There are several parking areas available within the vicinity – more information about those can be found online here.
