This garden brings Japanese culture to Argentinian turf. Are you ready?
A Japanese twist.
This is one of the biggest attractions of 3rd of February Park, and of the city in general. Built through the Japanese delegation in Buenos Aires, it was inaugurated in 1967 by then-princes Akihito and Michiko, to build a closer relationship between the two countries. With posterity, the Argentine-Japanese Cultural Foundation took charge of the garden’s upkeep, promoting authentic cultural life and immersion into the Japanese identity through an abundance of activities. These include lectures on traditional tales, exhibitions of Manga and animation in the garden, traditional tea ceremonies and advanced Japanese cookery classes. Admission costs 24 Pesos for adults, and under-12s and over-65s get in for free. Guided tours are only on weekends, and a visit to the exquisite restaurant is recommended. This is one of the city’s best-kept secrets.
