If you are looking for a moment of peace and tranquility in the chaotic Buenos Aires, we recommend you visit its beautiful Japanese Garden. A true paradise for fans of the country of the rising sun and one of the largest gardens of its kind outside of Japan.
The Japanese Garden was created by the Japanese community of Buenos Aires, in 1967, on the occasion of the visit to Argentina of the then Crown Prince Akihito, the father of the current Emperor of Japan. One of the most surprising data is that everything is made garden was built in just 50 days, which was the time before the visit of the imperial family to the country was announced.
The entire garden is distributed around a large central lake, which is connected by a pair of wooden bridges, created different islands. The waters of this lake are inhabited by hundreds of colorful fish, which eagerly await the food of their visitors.
All its plants were chosen in detail, to generate a dynamic landscape that changes at every moment of the year. For example, the flowers of the cherry trees stand out in July, the violet water lilies in summer or the bright yellow leaves of the ginkgo biloba in autumn and even the roads of gigantic azaleas in September make each season of the year have their charm.
In addition to its picturesque garden, here we will find a cultural center of the Japanese community, where different activities related to this Asian country are carried out. Inside we will also see a fixed exhibition on Japanese culture (kimono, painting, origami, Japanese dishes), a first-class restaurant, a nursery where you can specialize in bonsai and a shop selling various items, where you can get your Name, written in Japanese.
