Japanese Garden, Buenos Aires

4.3
#3 of 42 in Parks in Buenos Aires
Geographically they're half a world away, but at Japanese Garden, Argentina and Japan come together. Built in 1967 thanks to a donation by the Japanese community of Buenos Aires, the gardens celebrate unity between the two countries, with Japanese and native plant life sharing space in well-manicured perfection. Check out the central lagoon, thriving with carp, and walk across the distinctly Eastern bridges during your stroll around the gardens.

    Avoid Sundays in the afternoon on a sunny day. Represents the landscapes of Japan in a park scale. Mountains rivers the sea. Fish in ponds and typical food in its restaurant.

    Offers in addition to its well kept parks, restaurant with exquisite cuisine. He stressed the sushi. It is very good level. There are varieties of food. And the location is unbeatable.

    Cool Japanese gardens. There is an entrance fee and not great cheap food options although a nice sushi restaurant if you want to have a sit down meal inside. Nice for a wander round, amazing fish in the ponds. Can get quite busy.

    One of the best places to visit in Buenos Aires. Extremely beautiful, peaceful and truly amazing. Totally worth the price (around 100 pesos, I think). Would go there again.

    It is pretty and that is it. It is incredibly little, it took me like 20 minutes to see the whole place. The entrance fee was like 70 ARS, which might not be a lot, but it is not so easy to get there, and you actually spend far more time getting there than seing the place (if you are staying, lets say, in the downtown area). I would say it is a waste of time really (unless you are having a long long stay in the city). Just not memorable at all.

    It has many references and explanations about Japan, but as a Japanese Garden, it isn't very attractive. A serious downside is how the noise from the surrounding streets penetrates what should be a tranquil location, and that there is very little shade during summer time. There are also plenty of beautiful, free to enter, parks in Buenos Aires, and this is somewhat of a letdown. It's not that expensive though, if you're a tourist, and you can spend an hour walking around, taking pictures, and relaxing.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
