Japanese Garden in Buenos Aires , Argentina



One of the most popular tourist attractions in the beautiful city of Buenos Aires is the Japanese Garden. The porteƱos (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.


The garden is located in the centre of the city , in Palermo neighbourhood. It is a pleasure to walk all the way there but you can also get there by bus ( lines 10, 15, 37, 59, 60, 67, 93, 95, 102, 108, 118, 128, 130, 141, 160 and188) or by underground (subte) ,line D, Plaza Italia station.

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.
