Japanese Garden Buenos Aires, a huge green space in the middle of the city with a completely Japanese aesthetic.
It is a place that you will fall in love with as soon as you set foot here. Founded in 1967, before the visit to our country of Akihito, emperor of Japan.
It is located in the neighborhood of Palermo, a short distance from the renowned Bosques de Palermo. A place that allows you to isolate yourself from the noise of the city and enter a fantastic world of Japanese reality. For us, you are going to love this space so, our recommendation is that you go early and with time to enjoy it in its entirety. In this way, you will not have to rush to walk all its little bridges and nooks.
Its structure and trees will captivate your attention, everything is ornamented with Japanese tradition and elements brought from there. Within the range of native trees that it has, you will find Palo Borracho and Tipa, along with a huge variety of typical Japanese plants such as Azaleas and Sakura.
And it is not just about the flora, but in the huge lagoon you will see Koi Fish and various colorful carp.
Its structure and general design seeks harmony and balance, as is known from Japanese culture. Their bridges are different symbols, for example, the Bridge of God (representation of the way to paradise, whose shape is curved); Decisions Bridge or Zigzag Bridge; Puente Truncado (whose design takes you to the island of miraculous remedies).
In turn, it has a building that functions as a center for activities, mostly related to Japanese culture. In addition, it has a showroom of their culture, origami, paintings, kimonos and much more. If you also want to taste their exquisite food, you will find the typical Japanese food restaurant, as well as a plant nursery where you will be able to take some plants or buy food to feed the Koi fish (it is forbidden to throw any type of food at them unfit).
If you want to go with a souvenir, there is also a store with a variety of items, which, without a doubt, you will want to bring everything!
