The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

    Wonderfully peaceful and beautiful garden...and worth the admission!!
    The Jardin Japones was originally a gift from the Japanese citizens of BA to the city...and it's a gift that keeps on giving! The gardens are beautifully maintained, peaceful in surroundings and visually interesting no matter where you look. While there is an admission fee, it's nominal and clearly worth the price. Plants are clearly identified with name plaques and the small touches throughout the property make it so special (like the stone work and water features). Definitely spend a couple of hours here as it's clearly worth the visit.

    It contains everything you would expect of a Japanese Garden
    I'm generally "not a fan" of gardens, but since the Jardín Japonés is the fifth best thing to do in Buenos Aires, I thought that at $1.25 USD pp, it was worth a shot. It contains everything you would expect of a Japanese Garden: koi, bonsai, the stone lantern, the cherry blossom, the torii, the arched bridge, the etc. Add in the fact that the guy who punched my entrance ticket was Japanese and the place was overwhelmed with people, you'd think you were in Tokyo. Then again maybe I should not have visited on a Saturday afternoon.

    A nice guarded, curiosity of Buenos Aires
    A nice and quite large, relatively speaking, Japanese garden. It is probably among nice such gardens outside Japan. Some 30 min are enough to walk around. Bright red color was maybe too bright. It is probably a traditional color, but was “shouting” too much.

    Nice and Small Japanese Gardens in Buenos Aires
    It's a small Japanese Garden with typical Japanese Garden layout, trees, and flowers, with a pool and a bridge for photo-ops. Small garden, but charming and relaxing. Entry ticket is inexpensive, and the garden can be completed in 30 mins to 2 hrs - depending on pace. There are small stalls in the garden for trinkets etc. There's a Japanese restaurant in the garden, and the wait was long so we skipped it. Looked like a popular restaurant. As a tourist with more time in Buenos Aires then maybe cover it. Would not make a special trip here if time was a constraint.

    A Relaxing Stroll
    We have been to many of the top Buenos Aires attractions as per Trip Advisor. We entered on a weekday as they had just opened at 10am. There was a slight line as the fee was 690p. With the blue rate currently at 900p:$US1, it cost 77 cents per person. Best pocket change I ever spent. Even though the park is not extensive, it is well maintained & relaxing. One should plan probably less than hour, unless you eat or sit on a bench to relax in the shade! Fish, birds, plants, ponds & Mother Nature!!!

    Tranquil, Peaceful Garden
    A tranquil, beautiful, small garden filled with many species of trees and plants from Japan and the rest of the world, identified with their name tags. The garden celebrates Japanese style and culture with many bridges and water ponds . You can enjoy the walking paths or relax on one of the benches around the pounds. There is a Japanese restaurant and a flower shop. It was a rainy day and there were few people but we enjoyed our walk and buy some seeds from the shop.

    Beautiful garden in city center
    For a city garden, it’s beautiful although was quite crowded. However, for the small fee that they ask it’s more than worth walking through. The plants and trees are so well kept. I had the impression that the restaurant is the highlight.

    Beautiful Japanese Garden
    This is an amazing Japanese garden that is a must see attraction. The area is very nicely curated with authentic Japanese architecture and designs. I did not try the Japanese restaurant but they had a bonsai exhibit and origami classes when we were there.

    Something different
    A good alternative if you want to see something which is not Argentinian. This is a true Japanese garden, created for the visit of the Japanese emperor in 1967. On the positive side, it is a traditional garden, including pond, fish, vegetation and architecture. On the downside, it is not very large and quickly gets crowded.

    A wonderful colourful garden.
    A wonderful colourful garden. With a small lake, traditional red bridges, trees etc it is just a lovely area for a quiet stroll. Quiet on the day we visited as the rain that had been falling for several hours stopped and not a lot of visitors took the chance on a rain free visit. We did, and it was well worth it with the beautiful area and few people.

Nice garden to relax in. Pretty crowded on the weekend, lots of families. Minimal fee to get in. Surrounded by a huge park that also seemed nice to visit.

Worth the visit. You might consider visiting a Japanese garden in the capital of Argentina a bit strange, but the garden is well maintained, looks nice and is cheap to enter, I paid 1500 pesos.

The Japanese Garden is walled garden in a corner of Bosques de Palermo park. The Japanese were once a large part of the Buenos Aires population and built this garden. Japanese residents, while fewer in number, still maintain the garden. It is beautiful.

This is a nice space to spend some time visiting but I would not put it on my must visit list. It was nice to stroll around. The garden is very busy and on a sunny day there's not a lot of shade.

I've visited dozens of the world's most beautiful and authentic Japanese gardens in Japan and the world over. This does not rank as one of them. There is nothing"zen" or "tranquil" about it. They have loudspeakers playing recorded music and occasional voice anouncements. The cafe has chairs emblazened with "Nescafe". There is a vendor selling water filters, I've no inkling what that has to do with Japanese gardens. It was noisy and crowded. There are some nice features (koi!) and they do a good job pruning the trees. Entrance fee is really low, which makes it accessible so that's cool. Nice paper art show in the exhibit hall. But it is overrated and not at all representative of a world class Japanese garden.

It is an amazing park in the city center. Great garden desings and beautiful fishes inside the little lake. But be careful with the mosquitos they are wild and annoying

JardÍn Japanes has some nice plantings and offers some good locations for taking photographs but it is not very close to a Japanese garden, possibly a modern rather glib reinterpretation. Also make sure you pack your mosquito repellent. As with JardÍn Botanico there are many, they are all hungry.
