One of the most popular tourist attractions in the beautiful city of Buenos Aires is the Japanese Garden. The porteños (city dwellers), love to visit this park which resembles a real Asian garden .
The Japanese Garden was built in 1967, due to the first visit of the Crown Prince Akihito and the Princess Michiko.Since then ,many members of the imperial family have visited the place.
One of the things that I like most about this place , is the contrast between the surrounding skyscrapers and the traditional design of the garden.
The red bridge is the most popular spot in the garden, it is incredibly difficult to find it empty.
It is open from 10 a.m to 6 p.m. If possible visit it on weekdays ,because it is crowded at the weekend. However , if you are interested in a guided tour, these are available only at weekends and on public holidays at 11 a.m.The tickets cost 32 Argentinian pesos, that is around 3€ or 4 USD.You can also have some tea at the Japanese style tea house, enjoy a Sushi meal at the restaurant and buy some souvenirs from Japan.
I have been to BA several times and I have always returned to this lovely garden.There are even real Koi fish you can feed.
