I absolutely love Japanese style gardens. And this small garden in the middle of Recoleta neighborhood is a great escape of the craziness of the city streets right in the middle of Buenos Aires. This is one of my favorite places in the city.

A Japanese Garden in a busy metropolis like BA is a nice idea but the park is small and surrounded by noisy thoroughfares. That makes it hard to find a serene atmosphere which in my humble opinion is the essence of a Japanese garden. The entrance fee is 95 pesos which I find steep for what is offered. And if... More

Nice but too expensive for what you get. The area was quite small and the water was quite murky where you couldn't even see the fish

Really nice place to visit. Beatiful Garden. If you are visiting in September is a MUST. Also if you have the possibility, you can enjoy a really good meal in the restaurant. It's not cheap, but worth the visit.

It's a beautifully landscaped yet small Japanese garden. Because of its size and the number of tourists it feels very crowded, and for this reason the expected tranquility is lacking. You won't miss much if you don't have time to visit it.

The Japanese garden is located where the Parque 3 de Febrero begins, known as the parks of Palermo. Here you can breathe the Japanese tradition of respect for nature. The lake is full of beautiful fish (Koi Carps) of beautiful colors. It is a quiet place to enjoy the outdoors.

We walked all of the large parks and gardens in BA and chose to pay the ~$6 US dollar price to also see this garden. It was worth it to take some beautiful pictures and see the variation in gardens offered in the city.

Really peaceful spot in the centre of Buenos Aires. It costs 95P to enter and then you can wander in it for as long as you like.

I'd already been around the other mostly free gardens in Buenos Aires and loved them, particularly the Jardin Botanico, which is beautiful and peaceful (nearer the centre). Having been to many Japanese gardens before and really enjoyed the peace, I was pretty disappointed by the Beunos version. Loud speakers every 20 meters belting out incredibly tacky Japanese lounge music ruin... More

Staying in Palermo

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.
