Overview

Amidst Palermo lies this lovely oriental park filled with fish ponds, large stands of bamboo, a beautifully crafted arched bridge and a traditional Japanese tearoom. Inaugurated in 1967 by Japanese immigrants, its current layout was designed by famed landscape artist Yasuo Onomata to resemble the surroundings of a Zen temple. The garden's five acres are occupied for the most part by an artificial lake filled with exotic fish. This place feels especially intimate because, unlike most green spaces in Buenos Aires, it's sheltered by thick foliage. The flora is composed of over 150 different species, the majority of which have been brought directly from Japan. - Pablo Waldman
