Lili'uokalani Gardens

Queen Liliuokalani was the last monarch to rule Hawaii.  This authentic Japanese garden was named after Queen Lily and was built in the early 1900's as a memorial to the immigrant Japanese workers who worked on local sugar plantations.  The garden covers about 30 acres and is the largest Japanese garden outside of Japan.  The garden is located near downtown Hilo at the Hilo Bay end of Banyan Drive and Lihawai Street. 

There are very nice walkways that give you a very pleasant stroll.  Several benches are scattered about should you wish to just sit and contemplate whatever.

  

 

 

Some of the walkways got to be pretty narrow like this stone bridge.
