The Buenos Aires Japanese Gardens (Spanish: Jardín Japonés de Buenos Aires; Japanese: ブエノスアイレス日本庭園) are a public space administered by the non-profit Japanese Argentine Cultural Foundation in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and are one of the largest Japanese gardens of its type in the world outside Japan.
Following the demolition of a similar, smaller garden in the Retiro area, the Japanese Argentine Cultural Foundation secured a title to 2 hectares (4.9 acres) on the northeast corner of the city's extensive Parque Tres de Febrero for the purpose of creating a replacement. Completed in 1967, the gardens were inaugurated on occasion of a State visit to Argentina by then-Crown Prince Akihito and Princess Michiko of Japan.

Really nice experience at the gardens. If you love to get great pictures then you will love this place. Designed brilliantly to allow easy access to all the sites without queuing. Also have student discount which is a great perk.

Especial para dar un paseo y sacar fotos. Muy bien organizado y limpio. Tiene unos senderos espectaculares para sacar fotos o ver los peces. También tiene un restaurante, donde se sirve comida típica japonesa. Los precios son bastante elevados (más de 300$ los olatos) pero vale la pena.

Amazing experience! Delightful spectacle of friendship and trust between two wonderful nations. Peace is a recurrent theme and it's perhaps better appreciated in spring and fall. Regardless of the season, it's a must-see

Beautiful place, but not much to do apart from walking and eating (haven't done that though; eating I mean :p). Nevertheless, worth visiting. One of the most beautifull Japanese Gardens I've been to.

One of the most beautiful places I've ever been too. I could have spent hours and hours walking around, crossing those bridges and just taking pictures of everything. Everything is very well maintained and I love the fact that this garden also includes a museum to learn more about the japanese culture but regardless that, all the texts explaining the exhibitions are in spanish and not in english, which is weird considering the amount of tourists this place receives daily.

Beautiful and well maintained. A peaceful getaway from the rest of the city. Be prepared to expect that not all the traffic noise disappears, though.

This is the largest Japanese garden in the world outside of Japan. The entrance fee was 120, about 6 USD. I loved the atmosphere. So many beautiful trees. The fish pond was a little murky but that's nature taking its course.

Beautiful, quiet place. Not so big, has a nice restaurant. You can buy sake at the gift shop.

This is a lovely tranquil garden with typical Japanese features such as a torii gate and red bridges. The exhibition is interesting and easy to assimilate. I spent a happy and soothing hour here.

A beautiful display of Japanese gardens. It's definitely a treat to walk in the gardens and see the koi pond. Lots of places to sit, and great for pictures and the like.

This Japanese garden is gorgeous! Traditional and a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the weather while learning a little history of Japan.

A piece of peace in the middle of the town and one of the best Japanese restaurant from BA. Should not spend time looking for a better restaurant than that.

This place is unique and so calm in the middle of the chaos of Buenos Aires. If you hold the ISIC student card you pay 2×1. It's perfect to take pictures. They have many species of trees, three of them are descendants of the survivors of Hiroshima bombs. There is also a small lake with many kois, they are giant!. They have a cafeteria and a restaurant.

Beautiful park, spend at least 45 minutes here and make sure you give yourself time to read the signs. A nice escape from the city.

A must place to visit in Buenos Aires either if you're into japanese culture or not. Admission is very inexpensive, they offer free guided tour on weekends and holydays.

How nice a place is, is a formula calculated on how much you have to pay to get in. This garden is expensive. It’s a lovely place, don’t take me wrong. But considering the amount of money you have to pay to get in, plus the overcrowded common areas, it’s not worth visiting.

A typical Japonese garden is well kept although they could do a better job with the water treatment. Some of the Koi showed untreated bacterial infections.

I really love this place. Great service & amazing food. Do not forget to make a reservation. After dinner you can get to know the garden or maybe check out the bonsai.

Very lovely and quiet place for all those who love nature history and Japanese tradition. Also there is nice Japanese restaurant inside.
