CASARES AV. 3401
The Japanese Gardens are one of the most relaxing places in Buenos Aires. Located beside Tres de Febrero park, the site was inaugurated in 1967 to coincide with a visit by the emperor of Japan, Akihito, and his wife Michiko.
The various elements of the gardens were designed to create balance and harmony. There is a wide variety of plants, a pond with carp (koi), an island with bridges, and sculptures based on Japanese culture.
The park also has a cultural center, a Japanese restaurant, a craft shop and a nursery when visitors can buy bonsai trees and other plants.
