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!!!

The Japanese garden is certainly a pleasant enough place to visit,but I can't say that it's anything extraordinary.There are many other gardens in the world which are more beautiful.

I'm not sure. We spent some time sitting in the garden which was lovely but it's really small when we walked about. I don't see it as a great example of a Japanese garden and we might well of had just the same experience.

Nice garden and quite expansive, considering the location. Walking paths around ponds, over bridges to little islands. Admission fee seemed rather expensive, and the ambience was perhaps spoilt by the number of people present (we visited on a weekend). Welcome break from the hot, dry city.

Do not miss this garden! Totally gorgeous! Lots of photo opportunities and beautiful water spaces! To add to the fun, there is a very fun gift shop!

The last time we walked through the Gardens was at the end of 2008. Motivating us today was the beginning of an exhibit of Japanese kimonos that is only going to be on view until May 3rd. We thoroughly appreciated the japanese prints on the stairway leading to the Gallery of kimonos....and enjoyed them also. Making the visit more appreciated... More

The Japanese garden has spectacular views, the landscape is incredible. It is a nice tribute to the japanese - argentinian community.

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.

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.
