Jardín Japonés

Gardens in Palermo

First opened in 1967, these well-maintained Japanese gardens are a peaceful spot for a stroll, unless you're averse to the gentle chimes of Japanese music that emanate from speakers around the grounds. Inside there’s a Japanese restaurant along with ponds filled with koi and spanned by pretty bridges.

Japanese gift shops and tea rooms are scattered around the gardens and a visitor center hosts occasional cultural exhibitions and workshops on origami and taiko (Japanese drumming).
