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

Lovely gardens to walk around on a sunny day. A truly peaceful and attractive environment close to the Museum of Latin American Arts.

The garden is very quiet, relax and peaceful, you see animals (ducks and very big fishes), trees, a peace bell and architectural beautiful. If you love the japanese food you can find a restaurant too.

An unremarkable Japanese garden in the middle of a busy city. Its nicely groomed, yet not too interesting. A good place for taking a break from the noise and craziness of BAs streets.

Typical, albeit it small, beautiful Japanese garden within the city. It is a wonderful way to pass an hour walking around on a sunny day (again, very small, so I don't think you'd spend much more time than an hour here). Small admission fee along with small parking fee if you park on the street out front. Seniors are discounted,... More

Beautiful gardens in the north-west of Buenos Aires. An oasis of tranquillity and a photographers delight. There is an admission charge but if you are a 'senior citizen' with documentary proof then it is free!

Not that new or different from others that I have seen. Does not hold a candle to one in SF, ca. Not well kept up lots of dead and dieing plants.

This is a beautiful place, a little quiet oasis in the middle of big city. We enjoyed walk around a little lake, flowers, bonsais, trees, statues, everything. The atmosphere was so calming that I even had a little nap on bench. Totally recommended!
