The Lilioukalani Gardens are in a pretty area of Hilo, on Banyan Drive. Here you drive past huge, old Banyan trees. It's very lush in Hilo due to all the rain and mugginess. The gardens were designed as a tribute to the Japanese workers who came to work on the sugar plantations in the 19th century. Japanese bridges, pagodas, and ponds make for a lovely scene. Many Hilo residents enjoy this area and jog along the pretty walkways. The blue-gray Hilo bay in the background adds to the effect.
While in Hilo, go to Pescatore Italian Restaurant, the best Italian food you may have in a while!
Take Hwy 11 north until it turns into Banyan Drive. Follow Banyan Drive past the hotels and then turn right after the Hilo Hawaiian hotel. The gardens will be on your left. Park in the lot on your right.
This is an interactive map, you can zoom and move it.
