A wonderful, tranquil Japanese garden about 15 minutes by bus from central Buenos Aires. It contains all the features of a traditional Japanese garden, including streams, waterfalls, tea house, bridges and over 600 carp in the lake. It is possible to buy fish food from the shop and the carp will come and feed from your hand. There are exhibitions and events held throughout the year and information can be found on their website below. It was a beautiful place just to sit and relax after a hectic few days in BA. Hours of opening are 10.00 am until 6.00 pm every day. A short walk away are Palermo Lake and the Rosedal gardens so combined they would make a great day out.
I had to visit at least one garden here ,so after our visit to the cemetary ,a garden seemed like a good stop.
We caught a cab here from Recoletta,good plan as it was much further than it looked on the map.
The garden is small but at 40 years old it has some wonderful trees offering a welcome shade in the hot afternoon sun.There's an enormous willow tree here and gorgeous cherry trees in full bloom.
The water features are beautiful and the entire garden is well maintained.
Admission 5 pesos
The Japanese community in Buenos Aires donated this garden to the city in 1979 for the State visit by Japan's imperial family. The gardens are beautifully landscaped that has Japanese features including its bridges, temple like statues and koi carps in the lakes. There is a cultural centre next door where they put on cultural shows and displays.
It cost around 10 ARP to visit the garden.
When you are out in the Palermo district take some time to visit the parks. The prettiest is the Jardin Japones with it's quiet Japanese ponds, bridges, plants and voracious carp. The botanical garden up on Santa Fe is pretty and relaxing, but loaded with cats and surrounded by dog crap, so watch where you stepp. A block or two up from the Japanese Garden is another park where the locals jog. It is beautiful with a rose garden, fountains, walkways and a very good modern art museum.
The restaurant and bar offer a range of traditional japanese meals for lunch and dinner. This place also boats VIP rooms and is set in a typical japanese atmosphere. Open every day fro 10 am to 6 pm.
Entrance: ARS 3
Fue creado en 1967 como muestra de agradecimiento de la colectividad japonesa residente en Argentina. Diez años después, la paisajista Yasuo Inomata lo rediseñó tomando como modelo a los jardines Zen, que son los que se encuentran como acceso principal a los templos. La extensión del terreno es de casi dos hectáreas. En su interior se encuentra un lago artificial que cubre el 70% del lugar y posee varios puentes e islotes. El principal es La Isla de los Dioses, al que se accede a través del puente curvo o Puente de la Buena Ventura. La flora del lugar está compuesta por 150 especies, muchas fueron traídas desde Japón. Entre las principales atracciones del lugar se encuentra el Monumento al Inmigrante Japonés y La Campana de la Paz, con la que todos los años se celebra el día de paz mundial. El jardín tiene una confitería de comida oriental y un pabellón cultural Casa del Té, donde se organizan exposiciones, espectáculos y conferencias relacionados con la cultura japonesa. El parque permanece abierto durante todo el año. Las visitas guiadas enseña los significados de un Jardín Zen, se realizan todos los sábados y domingos a las 15 hs.
Abierto todos los días de 10 a 18 hs
The Jardin Japones is a 2 hectare garden in Tres de Febrero Park near downtown Buenos Aires; it includes a tea house, cascade, and a Koi-pond. The garden was donated to the City by the Japanese community, which has an historical relationship with Okinawa, the origin of some of its earliest settlers.
For a quiet walk during the week or a not-so-quiet one during the weekend, this is a nice spot a bit outiside downtown. There are exhibitions now and then so check the link below for some information. They also have workshops and lectures.
BIG PLUS: the restaurant serves excellent sushi!

It belongs to the FUNDACION CULTURAL ARGENTINO-JAPONESA. The Jardin Japones is a MUST in Buenos Aires, right located in the ellegant neighborhood of Palermo, I usually say that Palermo is the "Copacabana" of buenos Aires, this garden is simply part of the most beautiful parks in the city, the Japonese Goverment helps to take care of the property, it is a symbol of the great and everlasting friendship between Argentina and Japan...So flowers, lots of flowers are what you are going to see in this beautiful part of Japan in Buenos Aires!;)
SEPTEMBER - SECOND WEEK - 2005
If you are a tango lover, you will see that the tango song Garufa mentions PARQUE JAPONES...Do not misandestand....El Parque Japonés was quite near, between Callao Avenue and parts of Recoleta neighbrhood, it is a place where the people had fun with many toys, it was the Disneyland of the Argentinean, and I am talking about the year 1911, now it does not exist anymore.
In Palermo there is the Jardin Japones, it is a beautiful japonese garden close to the greenest park of the city, the famous Palermo Park, its flowers, its lake full of huge fish makes the most pleasant place in Buenos Aires. It is part of the Fundacion Cultural Argentino Japonesa, and the Goverment of Japan helps alot in the preservation of the park, and if you like flowers, this is the great opportunity to go, and it is also next to the famous Rosedal in Palermo as well!:)
