the island of tranquility in the middle of modern city

for the lovers of Japanese culture is the island of Japan spirit in the huge city of Buenos Aires, that is actually far from the Land of the rising sun.

Far from town. Had to pay to get into the garden. It small and hard to spend more than an hour there. As it is a long away from town I would not go again.

I've been in Japan and although its obviously not the same, you really feel like you are somewhere else than this country. A really silent, quiet and peacefull place.

Totally worth relaxing one or two of hours in this oasis in the middle of a city that literally never sleeps, specially if you can avoid weekend crowds.

We enjoyed the gardens along with the coit fish in the ponds. The gardens have different oriental plants and trees. It also has a nice oriental bridge that you can cross. It is a nice garden to visit and spend time to enjoy.

I love to go there! Just look at the pictures and you can see that it's gorgeous. It's not free but it's not expensive (around 5 dollars).

This place is both beautiful and peaceful. I enjoyed it tremendously, the admission is $50 pesos which isn't bad at all.

The gardens are so beautiful. We got our names drawn by a Japanese girl. We watch a judo exhibitions. Some girls passed by with their kimonos for a tea ceremony. A learning experience for mi kids of a glorious ancient culture. We loved it!!!

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.
