Just to stroll around, feed the bird, take your shoes of and feel the grass between your toes, This park is just what you need if you want to escape the busy city for a few hours

Worth a brief look, but it isnt very big nor is it incredibly impressive. If you are in Palermo it is easy to get to.. so you might as well stop by.

but you're in BA, so what did you expect? If you haven't seen a true Japanese garden and you're already in the process of seeing the other nearby parks on a day trip (of which there are tons in walking diatance) then this is worth a stop, if nothing but for the chance to support the local Japanese community.

We visited the garden because other museums nearby were closed due to a holiday in Buenos Aires on our last day in town. We walked the path around the lake. I was disappointed overall, probably because I was comparing the garden to a recent visit to the Huntington Gardens in Pasadena, CA, which are outstanding.

I really enjoyed the Japanese Gardens. We went to the Malba museum on the same day but you could also go to the botanical garden or zoo and all are very close by. Very small fee. I would advise going first thing in the morning (I think it opened at 10) as it was pretty busy then and only got... More

If you're looking for a nice, relaxing place to get away from the bustle of the city, I definitely recommend this. Just don't expect it to be an authentic Japanese garden. Also, there is saki in the gift shop. As of March 18, 2014, entrance fee was 32 pesos.

The Japanese gardens are worth to visit. Very nicely arranged and everything is simple, natural but somehow also magical. A good place to spend an hour or two.

The Japanese garden can be reached in 15 minutes from town by taking a tube to Plaza Italia and walking about 1km .... or a bus from the city. It costs 32 Pesos (about two pounds Sterling) to gain entry and once inside peace and a lot of quiet reigns. The gardens are about 2-3 times the size of a... More

Lots of parks to visit in Buenos Aires. This one you have to pay for (32 pesos). Not much but it all adds up! Was very well laid out but quite small and not the tranquility you would expect. A lot of road noise plus barking from the dogs being walked in the next door park.

The Japanese garden is a break from the hectic environment of Buenos Aires (BA) and is a very popular place visited by the BA and tourist individuals. For anyone over 65, the cost is zero and one is supposed to have ID to prove ones age. I suggest you do not carry your Passport with you, a driving license or... More
