Monkey Pod Trees or Hitachi

The monkey pod trees are amazing trees over 100 years. Nice place to visit and let the kids run and play while you wait in the shade. Beautiful green gardens for relaxation. 1... read more

Decided to walk around on a rainy day with two energetic girls. Worker gave the girls crackers to feed the ducks. They enjoyed themselves inspite of the rain.

Moanalua Gardens is a nice place to enjoy some fresh air and natures beautiful trees. I recommend walking a little deeper into the park to get away from any tourist (they don't seem to make it pass the first set of trees). there are some massive trees, great photo ops and picnic spots.

This is a private area so they have their own rules. It is a very nice park but you can't do anything...no bbq, no team sports (if you have 3 people throwing a ball that's considered a team sport), literally you can just lie down and read a book! I did take my kids to the stream there to fish... More

We were here for the 2 day 36th Annual Prince Lot Hula Festival this past July. Did not even realize such a nice garden is in this area surrounded by a middle and elementary school. With all the warnings that it would be drastically overcrowded with traffic, cars, and people, we tried to arrive earlier to get parking and get... More

Took my Japan friend Jean and her mom there to see this famous tree. The park now charges a nominal fee $3 for visitors and the huge property is a delight. Edged with pink and red ginger and coffee trees loaded with berries. The Koi/duck pond was closed the day we visited, but that is a treat for my granddaughter.... More

Hard to get to on your own since GPS takes you to the back gate which you can't get through. Visited by thousands of tourists a day who take pictures of them jumping in front of the monkey pod tree (HITACHI COMMERCIAL IN JAPAN), it's a serene place to go and have a picnic if you're not with a tour...

The garden is one of popular spot to visit for tourist. If you want to go there by myself with rent a car, be careful to reach there. The entrance locates right next to free way so many people past the entrance. Please use GPS.

Unless you're SUPER into trees and koi ponds, I think if you're debating to fit this into your schedule pick the more exciting option. I visited once 5 years ago and enjoyed taking fun photos with my cousins. I came back to Hawaii with my mom and sisters this time around and thought it would be nice visit. It was... More

This is a must visit especially if you're from Japan. The home of the famous Hitachi Tree! For the locals who have never made it to Japan, they don't realize this gem of a park we have here in Moanalua Gardens but that's ok, it keeps it not as crowded as it could be. A great place to take children... More
