Japanese Garden: a great place to visit in Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires has various places where we can go to disconnect, including the Bosques de Palermo (Palermo Woods), los Lagos de Palermo (Palermo Lakes), the Planetarium and this amazing place!
To walk through the park is to accept an invitation to relax, to distance oneself from the chaotic rhythm of the city. All is harmonious; nothing is out of place. This harmony exists because of the different elements that make up a Japanese garden. We walk about the water of its great lake, the fish that inhabit it, the bridges, rocks and typical vegetation
Apparently the horticulture on show includes black pine trees, gingko, sakura, and of course, the ubiquitous bonsai trees. This will impress all budding gardeners and karate kids alike.
In case you are wondering ‘why exactly are there Japanese gardens in Buenos Aires?‘, well, they were given as a ‘thank you’ to Argentina, by Japanese immigrants living in Buenos Aires, when they constructed this lovely five acre park in 1967.
