The place is so calming and beautiful. The Garden origin is about some partnership between Argentina and Japan. In short, there is a little lake inside, some Japanese threes that survived from nuclear attack, monuments, and so on. In my opinion it is a good place to go and take some pics. It is in the middle of Palermo!

Came across the Japanese Gardens by accident. It was very cheap to get in and we spent sometime wandering about the garden. Completely makes you forget about the busy streets of Buenos Aires outside the wall

If you have nothing else to do, pay your money to get in here. It's small, has a nice bonsai garden/greenhouse/shop, but it's really not worth the side trip.

Not necessarily as big as most Japanese Gardens usually are, but still enough variety and colour to keep you interested. Easily accessible and nice to casually wander around. Very busy on the day we visited, yet it still felt tranquil and relaxing. Worth a visit.

I stumbled on these gardens after going to the nearby Botanical Gardens. It is just as you would expect: tranquil, soothing, and beautiful. It is just a great way to spend an hour after perhaps shopping or eating nearby.

We practically had the gardens to ourselves. It's tranquil except for the music tht's piped in. Pretty ponds with red Japanese footbridge. Nice for photos.

We went primarily to have sushi for lunch but you had to pay the admission even to go just to the restaurant. Once we'd paid and entered, it was so beautiful that we toured and took pictures, petted the mostly tame stray cats and visited a couple of souvenir shops and spent a lot more time than we'd planned. It... More

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood 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 favourite 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.
