It is somehow nice, but nothing impressive. We have been there only because we were waiting the opening of Malba. Gardeners were working at the same time of the visit (this seems a bad management evidence for me) and the noise was quite disturbing.

S34°34.450' W°24.568' the tranquillity of this Japanese garden is totally overshadowed by the electronic shutter sounds of tourists and traffic and airplane noise. People visit to have their photos taken or with only virtual friends use a camera extension pole. The beauty of the garden is unimportant to them. Although beautiful sculptured with almost all iconic Japanese garden inventory, we... More

It was my third time in the Japanese Garden and it's still one of my favourite places in Buenos Aires. It's perfect for anyone who likes Japanese culture. It is beautifull and really relaxing. You can just enjoy the view drinking tea or having an ice cream. They always have some sort of exposition in the Garden too. My brother... More

Despite the presence of busy roads on two sides of the garden, there are plenty places where you can sit and take in the formal beauty of this wonderful garden. Centred around a small, rather murky lake, the meandering paths through the formal gardens open up new views at every turn. If you are visiting MALBA, take the time to... More

Beautiful garden for a walk, but it's not well maintained. There were two buildings that were boarded up and had someone's laundry hanging out to dry (?). There are so many plazas in buenos aires that this may not be worth it comparatively

The garden was nice, well organized but i could not feel a very quiet place as I expected from that kind of garden. If you are in the area and have some time is a nice place to visit to. The price was 32 pesos argentinos at the time that i was there.

Paid about £3 each to enter this small and disappointing park. What did we see - a dozen carp in a grubby pond, a japanese bridge in desperate need of a re-paint and a few dozen people wandering around trying to find what they had paid their money for. A safe haven from the crooks that spoil this city, but... More

Having spent a couple of days in the bustle of BA, it was nice to visit the gardens. Surrounded with traffic and activity, the area seems to drain the stress right out of you. It was nice to sit quietly on a bench and enjoy the Japanese vegetation and waters. It is a nice refuge, if you're wanting to take... More

I think my subject line summed it up but I need 100 words. It costs about 3-4 USD per person and it's very blah. I've been to a number of Japanese Gardens around the world and this one is sub par. The rose garden nearby is free and much nicer. Or just the public park next to it is nicer... More

This garden is pretty small but well maintained. It's a good respite from the din of the city around it, though I wouldn't characterize it as a "must see" in BA. It's fairly small, a little uninteresting, and surrounded by much more interesting museums and sights. Although cheap (32 pesos pp) you can walk through it in about 15 minutes.... More
