These garden were absolutely beautiful. Having been to Japan, and having Japanese family I can vouch for the authenticity of this place. There are lots of information cards for French speakers and children love to watch the koi carp in the lake. There is a souvenir stand nearby selling ice creams. I only have one caveat- there is only one... More

Magical space that will look much better in 100 years. It is strange to see a brand new landscape trying to be old traditional...Beautiful but not ancient, authentic but without the magic of age.

Having been a fan of Grace Kelly, I made it a point to visit these lovingly-laid gardens and had quite a peaceful, charming time there. Talk of typical Japanese pavilions and Tea-house as well as picturesque bridges, pond and waterfalls; this garden has them all!!

I love the Japanese Gardens in Monaco - walking through them on a quiet Sunday morning is like walking through a Japanese garden in Japan.

Beautiful Japanese style gardens located on the Monte Carlo seafront. They aren't very large, but include a lake with koi carp and some scenic bridges, a teahouse, a pavilion, and a waterfall. They are very nice for walking around. They were peaceful when I was there in January, although I can imagine in high season they must get busy as... More

Very beautiful, quiet and peaceful, well kept. Liked the ambience, there was nothing we disliked. There was no one around when we visited in January and so was lovely to walk around

A famous Japanese landscape-architect designed this enchanting garden, blessed by a Shinto High Priest. You will find here waterfalls and Japanese ponds, bamboo fences, a Tea house, stone lanterns, tiles and wooden gates, all “Made in Japan” A very relaxing atmosphere, located near the worldwide known business centre called “Grimaldi Forum”

Nice small park in Japanese style. Water cascades, colorful carps in the ponds and trimmed trees. The area is not too large but then what to expect since it's located in the country that is 2km long.
