It's my favorite park in the town as far as immigrant park goes(German,Polish and Ukrainian) very nice to take pictures but still small and not worth it if you're really far away

Despite the Japanese immigration in Curitiba is one of the most important in the world, this garden is a bit of a let - down. Cities with much lesser Japanese immigration have far more beautiful Japanese gardens (as Buenos Aires and Montevideo).

I passed the Japanese gardens one year later after my first visit when I walked from Merces to shopping Palladium. Sad sight, the Japanse gardens were not maintained like they used to be, possibly because a lot of money went to waste in the world cup.

It was so pleasant just to sit in the beautiful space and enjoy the nice November weather. There is a small gift shop and visitor's center in the Padoga structure in the center of the park.

The Japanese Gardens are nice, but they're a little small as they only cover a block in the middle of the city. Not much to do as there's not much nearby.

Nice little park in the centre of Curitiba - nice japanese building and lots of little ponds. We went there late at night and the building changes colours and is very picturesque.

Praca do Japao is a small garden in Agua Verde/Batel. Nice place to relax with Japanese fish ponds and structures built.

Nice square for those living around it, but do not waste your time visiting to see this. It's cute but tiny.
