Relaxing place with a lot of different trees. We enjoyed laying in the sun and listening to the birds. You can still hear the city but its nice to stroll through and see the different plants. Not too bad of a walk from plaza Italia.

Loved the Japanese gardens! It is the perfect way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon! It can get very crowded at times but it is well worth it.

Beautiful Japanese garden, however not a very big centre and cost to enter. Lots of other interesting local cultural sites to see in Buenos Aires unless you are really into Japanese gardens would suggest better to see other attractions. There is a restaurant and some activities you can do while at the garden.

Very busy. Quite beautiful but also quite small but worth it. Had an OK lunch in Japanese restaurant as well. Lots of people taking selfies was a bit irritating . Koi are enormous a bit off putting how large and gaping their mouths are. I was almost worried for safety of toddlers hands !

After the bustle and mad traffic of BA, a surprisingly quiet and restful corner. We were told the restaurant was good, too.

Very well kept. Beautiful. Interesting. Children can feed the fish. Great for an one hour tour. Not more, since there is not much to see.

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
