My wife and I went to this garden after visiting the Bishop Museum and before we went to Pearl Harbor. It is a private garden sponsored by Hitachi, that is know for its monkey pod trees. It is a good place to relax.

Mother Nature at her best. Lots of huge trees in addition to this one which is used in an area excavating advertisement, I believe. One park I recommend visiting.
