It is not too much to say that this course is just about the full course. An interesting story about each tree is told while viewing the trees and palm trees that are often seen in the city, and finally coming to the Ground Cover Plant Zone. There are even different types of grass, so why not look for plants that suit your home?

The hedges of this arboretum are not just ordinary hedges. They form a maze. Who will reach the goal first?

After finishing the maze, walk through the line of Tropical almonds (Terminalia catappa) and return to the visitor center for urban greening. It is a course that features the pleasant shades of greenery.

Try the course through the Herb Garden Zone and Larval food plant garden for butterflies

The “Herb Garden Zone” course features the scent of approximately 90 kinds of herbs. Various herbs can be observed including herbs that have existed in Okinawa from long ago such as Artemisia campestris L. and Peucedanum japonicum as well as Salvia and Rosemary.

From there, move to the “Larval food plant garden for butterflies” which features a collection of plants (food plants) that the larva of butterfly eat. On a sunny morning, you may be able to see butterflies gently flying!

Changeable upon request
