2017 $6.65 Lili'uokalani Gardens
 
Hawaii’s last reigning monarch, Queen Lili’uokalani, had a great love of her people.  So when a garden was proposed to honor Hawaii’s early Japanese immigrants, she happily donated 30 acres of land to the project.  Thanks to this gift, Lili’uokalani Gardens became the largest Edo-style garden outside of Japan.

Japan has long been famous for designing beautiful gardens.  Each era in its history has brought new traditions and styles to the art, with gardens from the Edo period being the most grand and elaborate.  They include ponds, waterfalls, dry stone beds, footbridges, traditional stone lanterns, and sometimes even tea houses.  Lili’uokalani Gardens has many of these features.
An Edo-era gardening technique (called shakkei) is to showcase the landscape outside the garden.  If a mountain or waterfall is in the distance, great care is taken to arrange plants and rocks around these views.  In Hawaii, the ocean is the most important natural feature, and it can be clearly seen from inside Lili’uokalani Gardens.

With its tropical breeze, swaying palm trees, and 100-year history, Lili’uokalani Gardens is a beautiful and enduring part of Hawaii’s rich cultural heritage.
