Geographically they're half a world away, but at Jardin Japones, 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.

Jardin Japones Reviews
Não tem como deixar de ir. Além disso a área do entorno é perfeita pra se conhecer como os portenhos aproveitam os espaços verdes no dia a dia. Que a sorte deles! more »There's no way to stop going. Besides, the surrounding area is perfect to know how the Porteos enjoy the green spaces in the day-to-day. that their luck!
Precisei pagar 150 pesos para entrar (por pessoa). O jardim é muito bem cuidado, tudo muito limpo. Lindas Pontes e vistas para uma boa foto. Lá dentro tem restaurante e lojinhas. more »I needed to pay 150 pesos to enter (per person). The garden is very well cared for, all very clean. Beautiful bridges and views for a good photo. There's a restaurant and a little shop inside.
Great, however the size of the place needs to be bigger to accommodate the crowds. Luckily I was able to get in a day it was raining but went back to see an exhibit of art and there were long lines down the sidewalks. I would love to see more Japanese plants (or at least Asian species like Hoyas which might do better in such a warm climate) and architectural features, and the name plaques have scientific names added to them as well as the common names.
I went in out of mere curiosity and holding low expectations, but I gotta admit I was blown away by all the beauty and attention to detail you could sense just by standing there and looking around. This garden is very old, and very well maintained. It truly gives you authentic Japanese vibes, and it has more things essential to a Japanese gardens than others I've been to(especially those that claim to be great Japanese gardens, ironically). You know the koi carps that swim in the pond have had a happy and long life there(they're HUGE, btw), as well as the turtles and birds that I saw. Oh, and the cats. The animals seem at peace and honestly help to bring this garden to life. I also saw a traditional tea house, but I think you have to make and appointment to assist to a tea ceremony of sorts? Not really sure. There's a cafeteria and a restaurant inside as well, but since I was just walking by I didn't really get to try the food. I just had some mate with a bag of cheese buns, while I sat to take in the sights and enjoy the overall peaceful experience that the park has to offer. Anyway, truly, you gotta come. I'm sure you'll love it.
