a wonderful garden inside the Bosques de Palermo

One of the world's nicest Japanese gardens outside Japan, it offers a beautiful scenery with trees, ponds, fishes. You can eat inside as well.

Really awesome garden, you are suddenly in Japan. The staff is Japanese, the shops sell Japanese stuff and you can also go to the restaurant inside the garden. The food is expensive and is not authentic.

I love visiting Japanese Gardens and would say this was a nice one. Only thing spoiling it was the modern high rises nearby. Which I liked in themselves, but takes you away form the sereneness of this garden. There are several water areas and bridges. One bridge even leads to a little island which is especially popular with kids to... More

A calm and beautiful Japanese garden, with a large pond full of multicoloured carp. There is a restaurant, not very Japanese, much more fusion, not cheat, and no¡t worth a visit. There are many people walking around, specially the days entrance is free. Since it is no longer run by the Japanese Embassy. It is more commercial, more places for... More

A beautifully kept and well designed garden with koi ponds, japanese bridge and a restaurant where you can get sushi. We went during a special 3 day festival which included taiko drummers, music, martial arts displays, and an art show of delicate watercolors. Seniors can enter the gardens for free. They also have a nursery where you can buy plants... More

This small well-preserved garden is a good choice if you are looking for a quiet and nice place before lunch. You can hire a bicycle at the design shopping in Plaza Francia and ride across all the parks to there ( there is a cycle path all the way down). The restaurant inside is a good choice too, all sushi... More

This is the one of the good places to visit in BA. Unfortunately, the charges are very high as compare to the area of the garden and the kind of attractions they have inside. If you like to visit gardens, then you will love it for sure.

We went on a Tuesday, knowing that the entrance would be free.The lady at the ticket office charged us anyway. I mentioned that I thought it was free on Tuesdays so she asked for our ages, we are seniors so she let us in free. The Garden itself is very beautiful. It is not big but just beautiful and peaceful... More

We haven been to Japan last year and I will not compare it to the wabi-sabi quality over there, but I have also visited Portland's Japanese Gardens which were way nicer. There were plastic bags in the pond, the grass was not cut well and not really a high diversity. It definetly lacks the Japanese refinements and for 50 pesos... More

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood 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 favorite 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.
