To be honest, I am not sure how I ended up at a Japanese Garden in Argentina, but it was WELL WORTH IT. We first had lunch at the Japanese restaurant on site and it was amazing. We ordered sushi and it came out on the wooden boat. There were also tables I saw in the restaurant that were low... More

Absolutely loved this place. We went after arriving the same morning and dropping bags off etc. The idea was for just a relaxing afternoon but still do something. Very relaxing to just wander about. It was quite busy but still nice. I just wish I'd brought my proper camera. Entry is 70 pesos for non Argentinians which I can't fault... More

Do not judge the place by thinking "why do the entrance costs 70 pesos?". Would go every week if I had the opportunity. Beautiful and peaceful place. Makes you feel like standing in oriental grounds. Tons of great pictures are guaranteed. Loved it!

The Japanese Garden is large, and a lovely visit. There are often special cultural events, and a restaurant as well as a food/snack area with really good crepes. You can buy fish food in the gift shop to feed the koi.

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.
