Japanese Garden - Review
Nestled right next to the Larvotto Beach and the bustle of the busy streets, facing the sea, is the Japanese Gardens. A small and serene garden one can enjoy a nice peaceful walk here at any time of the day away from the noise of the city, or come early and meditate at the Zen garden. The garden was built in 1990 by YasuoBeppu as a miniature representation of Shintoist philosophy. There are many waterfalls and ponds in the 7 hectare garden and multiple tiny picturesque bridges cross them. The water bodies are full of carp and Koi fish. A Japanese teahouse is located at the centre of the garden. It is a small quiet park perfect for an hour long stroll or an undisturbed conversation.

Japanese Garden, Monaco Reviews
The happiest and safest place in the world. I don't consider myself a materialist, I just like nice things that are pretty to be around and look at. This is a spot for all 5 senses to be bathed in a soothing and tranquil peace. Heart it.
Stunning. With the exception of supercars noise passing by every minute total peace and serenity in the middle of Monte Carlo and Lavrotto beach. Very well kept and with many places where you can spend time by your own business surrounded by nature, seemingly somewhere in Japan. Perfect place and amazing idea more cities should follow.
This is a nice little green oasis with ponds, mini islands, mini waterfalls and zen gardens. I guess once could call this a collaboration between Japan and Monaco, Japanese style garden with a touch of Mediterranean. I was actually on a business trip in Monaco and our event was next door at the Grimaldi Forum (conferencing venue). It was quite stressful for me and I came outside one evening to catch a breather and right in front of me was the Japanese Garden. It was a beautiful and pleasant surprise. Visiting this place gave me the peace and strength I needed to go back inside and do some more work. It's beautiful and peaceful inside, everything is so neat and picture perfect. I honestly felt like I was in Japan. A big plus is that it's free to visit. I was surprised to see that not many people visit this place. It's a shame because it is beautiful and there is loads to see. I happened to stumble upon it with some good luck but unfortunately as I was on a business trip, I couldn't take my time and look around as much as I wanted to. If I visit Monaco again on a pleasure/holiday occasion. I would definitely make time in my schedule to visit again.
It's very beautifully designed garden a must visit in monte Carlo. It gives u a peace of mind and makes u closer to the nature.
A zen garden in the heart of the city .... it’s an aesthetic, an art of living , a meditation for the mind to rearrange himself while connected to that environment
