Japanese Garden

Japanese Garden featuring a park and a pond

Take a tranquil stroll around this portal to Japan. The impressive replica of spiritual Zen gardens features lakes, bridges and elegant floral displays.

The Japanese Gardens is a large Buenos Aires park that acts as a replica of the elegant gardens in Japan. It comprises 5 acres (2 hectares) of well-maintained grounds in the northeastern corner of the Tres de Febrero Park. Home to stylish plants, flowers and lakes, the park also has a cultural center, a restaurant, a greenhouse of bonsai trees and a gift shop.

Cross the central lake on the Divine Bridge. In Japanese culture, it traditionally represents the entrance to heaven. Find the island full of herbs at the end of the Truncated Bridge on the same lake. The bridges resemble traditional red structures from Japan. Peruse the Japanese floral displays around the lake, including sakura, which is a pink, blossomy tree, and azalea, a fuchsia flower.

Explore sculptures, rocks and mini-waterfalls in this tranquil park. Let the peaceful atmosphere take you away from busy city life.

Plaques scattered around the park identify the species of plants, flowers and trees you’ll see. Feed carp in the lakes. Attend speeches on Japanese culture, such as manga art and origami, the art of folding paper. Ceremonies and art exhibitions are held year-round.

Dine at the tea room and restaurant in a pagoda-style building. This is a towered structure with many tiers of oriental design. Enjoy a Japanese meal of sushi, tempura and green tea.

The Japanese Embassy created the gardens in 1967. There is an admission fee. The gardens are open daily from morning until late in the afternoon year-round. The restaurant is closed on Tuesdays.

The Japanese Gardens are located just north of the affluent Palermo area of the city. It is part of the Bosques de Palermo (Palermo Forests) area, which comprises many other parks. To reach the gardens, take the city’s metro system to one of the stations around Palermo. You can also hail a taxi from the street and ask for the Japanese Gardens.
