Amazing that in the middle of this huge city, that there is such a lovely restful Garden which was a gift from Japan to Buenos Aires.

The Japanese Garden is a nice place to take a stroll. It was quite crowded when we visited, so not as peaceful as it might otherwise have been...

Pretty gardens but full of people on a holiday Monday, when most other places closed. We spent our last morning in B.A.here. Nice walk outside in park and alongside zoo. Perhaps might be more pleasant on a weekday late afternoon or evening? Attractive layout, easy to walk around. There was a small exhibition of Japanese style art while we were... More

I was hoping to find a cool and authentic place to relax and enjoy nature. Instead i found a touristic place that looked really fake. Some bamboos would have brought some shade and might have helped to create a more realistic place.

One of several places that you should visit if you happened to be in BA but nothing too special. Clean and pretty.

While there are a few highlights of the garden, by International standards it is quite ordinary. It is worth stopping by for a visit and spend some time relaxing. There is a restaurant on site, but no outside food or drink is allowed in.

This is a beautiful, well-kept Japanese garden which gave you a sense of being in Japan. The entrance fee was 70 pesos per person. We enjoyed our stroll through the gardens and feeding the Japanese gold fish, as we had brought a few pieces of bread. This is a great sunny day activity. After our stroll, we walked about another...

A friend recommended I visit the Japanese Gardens. It's a really lovely oasis in the city and beautifully manicured. It's only worth about an hour to wander around and check out the garden but it's a really lovely, calming place and very easy to get to.

A lovely part of the main park at the Centre of the city. Very well kept. They have a restaurant inside the park as well which is handy. Loads of branches to rest so you can bring your own take-away/packed lunch to have a nice break.

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
