About Japanese Garden, Monaco
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
Such a lovely & tranquil space in the middle of Monte Carlo's Renaissance & modern mix of architecture. No entry fee, you can just walk in and enjoy the green landscape whenever you want. There are plenty of seats but no public toilet here. Parking can be found nearby. This place is next to the seaside, so you can visit the beach if you stroll along the pathway behind the garden.
Very quaint little Japanese Garden in an area close to the shore. Free to the public and a peaceful place to view some koi, rocks, bridges and streams. You can see it all in 15 minutes but you should take some time, wander and enjoy it.
Beautiful gardens located in Monaco. A great place to walk around or even just sit and enjoy
It's a place where you can enjoy a cool shade in a hot afternoon. Very well preserved and a great place to visit in Monaco
A nice little and free Japanese Garden. Nothing special but worth the visit if you are near it.
