Large botanical garden opened in 1962. The grounds includes greenhouse with plants native to the island, a view point, and woodland. The Hachijo Visitor Center is also located in the grounds and is a good place to start to get maps and plan what you’re going to see (you an also see the glowing mushrooms native to the island!).
