Japanese Garden, with elements of its own culture, is the only green space with distinctly Japanese characteristics. It is a corner that falls in love with everyone who visits it.
It was built in 1967, as a testimony to the visit of the Emperor of Japan, Akihito.
Located in the heart of Palermo, very close to the Bosques de Palermo, it is a space of harmony that cuts through the bustle of the city. It is like entering a world of Japanese fantasy. Without a doubt, we believe that you are going to fall in love with this wonder, so we recommend you go early and early. In this way, you will not be in a hurry and you can walk calmly throughout its interior.
Its trees are charming, and the entire structure of the garden is ornamented with traditional elements from Japan. It has native trees such as Tipa and Palo Borracho, and also a great variety of typical Japanese plants such as sakura and azaleas.
Another note of color is that in the lagoon you will find the typical Koi fish and carp of various colors.
All its elements seek balance and harmony. The bridges inside are symbols, such as the Bridge of God, curved and representing the way to paradise; the Truncated Bridge, which leads to the island of miraculous remedies, and the Bridge of decisions or Zig Zag Bridge.
In addition to its garden, it has a building that is a center for Japanese cultural activities for everyone who likes it. Also, it has an exhibition about their culture, with kimonos, paintings, origami and more. It has a typical Japanese restaurant to enjoy this delicious food, and a nursery to buy various plants and food for Koi fish, since it is forbidden to throw food at them that is not suitable. For those of us who like to have souvenirs, rest assured that there is a store with a variety of Japanese items where you will want to buy everything! It also has a Chashitsu (tea house), it is a space specially built to experience the traditional Japanese tea ceremony.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, the Garden has 3 visiting shifts. Here we leave you their website so that you can purchase the tickets and have the information about the protocols to follow.
