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
Probably the most beautiful place in Monaco any time of the year! Relax by the little tea house with a book, or watch the koi fish in the lake or catch some sun rays by the waterfall - peaceful, quiet and very beautiful!
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.
A leisurely stroll down Avenue Princesse Grace will take you to this Instragram-worthy haven of tranquility. A pleasant change from the tourist jungle around Place du Casino. Particularly worth a visit if you are into manicured gardens; it is also less busy than the Jardin Exotique. Villa Sauber and the Grimaldi Forum are a few steps away from this location.
A small garden but neatly maintained. Liked d detailing in small things.
