A Quiet Place In Busy Buenos Aires

This typical Japanese garden is unique in being located in the heart of a bustling city, a great way to pass a quiet afternoon.

Interesting but nothing special. If you have been to other Japanese gardens you might not need to put this on your itinerary.

This is a nicely maintained garden in a beautiful setting. If the day isn't broiling it is very enjoyable and relaxing.

We visited the gardens with our son, his wife and their 5 year old son and everyone enjoyed the zen like atmosphere of the gardens. Located in the busy Plaza Italia in the middle of Buenos Aires, one easily escapes the stress and noise of a busy city. It is esthetically beautiful and relaxing. There are many snack bars and...

I will admit that visiting Japanese gardens is a favourite activity of mine and this was no different - not the most stunning Japanese garden in the world but a very pleasurable walk around on a hot day. Lots of great opportunities to take photos.

I had to visit at least one garden here ,so after our visit to the cemetary ,a garden seemed like a good stop. We caught a cab here from Recoletta,good plan as it was much further than it looked on the map. The garden is small but at 40 years old it has some wonderful trees offering a welcome shade... More

It's not a particularly unique Japanese garden. If you're looking for pretty scenery and you're already in the area it's not a bad place to while an hour away. But I wouldn't make a special trip here. It's $95 pesos to enter and I found the grounds noisy and overrun with people. I would, however, recommend the city botanical gardens,... More

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
