One of the best ways to escape the frenzy of Buenos Aires is to visit the scenic and peaceful "Jardin Japones" located in the Palermo neighborhood.

The Japanese Garden is situated at the corner of Avenida Figueroa Alcorta and Avenida Casares surrounded by the lush green Palermo Woods.

Visitors are welcome in the Jardin Japones every day from 10 AM to 6 PM including holidays.

The admission fee is $4 pesos per adult over 10 years of age on weekends or holidays, $3 pesos for adults on weekdays, and $1 peso for children aged 6 to 10. Retired people or pensioners who are citizens or Argentina are allowed in for free Monday through Friday.

Guided tours of the Japanese Garden are given Saturdays, Sundays and on holidays.

Some of the features of the Japanese Garden include a "salon cultural" (cultural center), a "confiteria" (snack bar), a "biblioteca" (library), a "kiosco/regaleria" (gift shop), and the "Vivero Kadan" (Kadan nursery). There are bamboo plants, bonsai trees and other traditional Japanese horticulture items on sale at the nursery.

Arched Wooden Bridge
After enjoying a stroll around the gardens, we went in to the "Salon Cultural" (cultural center) to examine their collection of Japanese artifacts. Some of the items they had on display were traditional kimonos, dolls, paper lanterns and intricately woven silk fabric works of art.
