The entrance
The open area led from the entrance. The orchid show was held in this open area.
Here is much larger than we expect. About 300 orchids were exhibited by the members of Utsunomiya Orchid Society. But we might get a impression it was not enough.

In dome, it is keeping at 20 C and good ventilation for growing these coconut trees.

The show was very fine in bright sun shine and open atmosphere
There is stage decorated with orchids

Many members of Utsunomiya Orchid Society love Paphiopedilum very much.
