Located on the NE windward coast of Oahu, this botanical garden and art gallery is a real Hawaiian jewel.
The property was developed by Hiroshi Tagami, one of Hawaii's most beloved artists and a highly skilled landscape designer and botanist, starting in the mid-1960's, opening it to the public in 1977. The gardens are Japanese inspired, radiating out from a traditional teahouse. Gillian and Philip Armour purchased the property in 2002 and have continued to operate it as an art gallery and botanical gardens since then.
When the floating bridge
Of the dream of a spring night
Was snapped, I awoke:
In the sky a bank of clouds
Was drawing away from the peak.
