It's beautiful to go any time, but if you can go in the morning, DO IT! Very calm and peaceful to walk along the river and take pictures. The last time I go there I've payed $50 - per person.

This is a lovely place to stroll through. We enjoyed a Japanese tea after. Although we were there before dinner, the suishi preparations looked promising!

My family really enjoyed visiting the Japanese garden, with its quaint bridges and islands. It is a place to escape from the noise and traffic.

I am a garden fan and have been lucky enough to visit Japan several times and see many beautiful gardens there. I have also visited quite a few Japanese gardens in other countries including a couple close to Brisbane Australia where I live - this one would be near the bottom of my list! To me it had a "Disney'... More

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.

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.
