Beautiful Japanese style gardens located on Banyan Drive right near to Coconut Island. Lovely to see, spend sometime wandering through the gardens before or after a visit to Coconut Island park and then make your way down the banyan tree lined streets to one of the great restaurants in this tourist area outside the center of town.Recommended for:

Excellent place to spend the afternoon. The park's site was given by Queen Liliʻuokalani, and lies southeast of downtown Hilo, on the Waiakea Peninsula on Hilo Bay. Much of the park now consists of Edo-style Japanese gardens, built in the early 1900's, and said to be the largest such gardens outside Japan. The gardens contain Waihonu Pond as well as bridges, koi ponds, pagodas, statues, torii, and a Japanese tea-house. One of my favorite places in the city of Hilo.Recommended for:

Off Banyan Tree Drive, this is a place where Hilo's locals come to picnic or let their kids blow off some steam by running around. The Japanese-style landscape garden is gorgeous, backed by azure Hilo Bay. Walk across petite stone bridges and past lanterns and pagodas while trying to identify the cornucopia of tropical plants that bloom and grow in this free public park.Recommended for:

Located in Hilo, adjacent to Banyan Drive, this beautiful park is a great place for a picnic or scenic walk through the Japanese gardens. The 30 acre garden site was donated by Hawaiian Queen Lili'uokalani and now features bridges, koi ponds, pagodas, statues, paths, and a Japanese Tea House. A small bridge connects the main park to Coconut Island, which is a quiet place for a picnic and viewing downtown Hilo and the enormous breakwater that protects Hilo bay.

A peaceful bay side park along Banyan Drive; lots of walkers and joggers and a few fishermen, too. Stroll around the cut lawns and pathways, across Japanese style footbridges. Visit Coconut Island, a short way across a walk bridge. Great spot to watch the cruise ships arrive and depart.
