Award Winning Garden
Seventeen years ago, Ira Ono purchased a parcel of neglected historic property nestled in the intimate rainforest setting of friendly Volcano Village, a stone's throw from Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. With his passion for gardening, Ira brought the grounds and original structures back to life in a dedicated labor of love. An original 1908 farmhouse is now home to a contemporary art gallery and a natural foods restaurant, Café Ono. There is also a guest cottage which was restored from the original groundskeeper’s house and the former garage is now an art studio.
