Japanese Garden of Buenos Aires

3:41 PM Sandra Gutrejde 1 Comments

In a corner of the large Parque Tres de Febrero, on Av Casares and Av Figueroa Alcorta, lays the Japanese Garden of Buenos Aires, an oasis in the middle of the city. In 1967, the city government lent this piece of land to the Japanese immigrants in Buenos Aires, who in return made this beautiful garden for all the inhabitants of the city.

Its ponds are filled with large koi fish, which can be fed with the koi food sold at the kiosks, making this a perfect place to visit with small children.

The tranquility of the place also invites to seat and relax in one of the many benches dispersed around the ponds. It is also a nice place to read a book or just contemplate nature. There are many species of trees and plants from Japan and the rest of the world, identified with their name tags.

The park is beautiful all year round, but the best time to visit is in early spring (September-October), when the multicolored azaleas are in full bloom.

There´s also a tea house and restaurant, which serves the best sushi and Japanese dishes in Buenos Aires, with the magnificent view of the gardens.
