This beautiful architecturally designed center boasts more than 2,000 orchids, many of them rare and endangered from all over the world. They are displayed in the Tropical Dream Center’s three special greenhouses. Also for orchid fans the Tropical Dream Center hosts the Okinawa International Orchid Show each year which brings together over 20,000 orchids of the world.

The Tropical Dream Center also features fourteen theme zones with tropical flowers from different parts of the globe grouped together with water birds and other creatures like tropical fish from the Amazon. The climate of Northern Okinawa makes for easy growing of many of these magnificent plants and flowers so for a relaxing afternoon the Tropical Dream Center is well worth checking out.
