It´s my second time in beautiful Buenos Aires, and I had to come back to this beautiful japanese Garden, it´s a very beautiful place for you to recharge your batteries, take pictures, or just take a walk around. I love this place!

Gardens are nice to walk around and enjoy a beautiful day. The sushi restaurant is awful however. It was the worst sushi of my life, hands down.

I went to The Japanese Gardens with a group of friends on our way to MALBA museum which is nearby. We found an small Garden Well designed where you can relax and eat some sushi ( there is a restaurant inside). Overall The Garden is nice but there are nothing special about it, nothing that could actually blow your mind.

We went here in August and there was not a lot blooming but the garden was still beautiful and tranquil. The garden is small- we were here less than a hour. The only thing to watch out for is the possibility of long lines to get in. We tried to go on a beautiful Monday afternoon that was a national... More

We enjoyed a chilled walk around the Japanese garden. It was end of winter in August and so there were not many flowers blooming. The garden is kept well and there are some lovely features (the red bridge, a water-walkway and some nice routes). It takes less than 30 minutes to see. You can extend the visit by going to... More

The place is very peaceful and quiet and on certain days there are special ceremonies,... More

The Japanese Garden had all that could make it perfect: Cherry blossoms, a beautiful lake, a souvenir store... If you want to know your name in Japanese, check your luck or make a wish then, go there too. It was a bit crowded in the winter vacations, but there were no lines and we could walk freely and calmly. It... More

At one point this was supposedly the most impressive japanese garden outside of Japan- well not anymore! I do realize that BA has been in an economic crisis for quite some time, but what I saw here reminded me of my trip to China in '99. It tried hard to give the authentic vibe but it came off like a...

After visiting the malaba museum we went to the Japanese garden it was quite pricey , the entrance fee was 32 pesos per person and the garden though well maintained was not worth the entrance fee
