Japanese Garden (Le Jardin Japonais)
Though Monaco is limited in real estate area, the small principality is home to quite a few green spaces, including the beautiful Japanese Garden (Le Jardin Japonais). It was created in 1994 following strict Zen design rules at the wishes of Princess Grace of Monaco. The almost 2-acre (0.8-hectare) garden hosts a waterfall, small mountain, pond, and tea house.

The Basics
Monaco’s Japanese Garden offers a small, peaceful refuge from the towering apartment complexes and glitzy stores that make up the principality. You can take a hop-on hop-off bus to explore the area, including a stop at the Japanese Garden. If you’re staying in Nice, private day trips are available to explore Mont Alban, Eze, Monaco, and Monte Carlo.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Japanese Garden is a must visit for phytophiles and those looking for a quiet escape.
  • There is no entrance fee to visit the beautiful gardens.
  • Visitors typically spend about an hour exploring the grounds.
  • A majority of the gardens are accessible for wheelchairs and those with limited mobility.

How to Get There
The Japanese Garden is located in Monaco’s Larvotto neighborhood, next to the Grimaldi Convention Center. You can take a cab from Monaco’s city center or walk for about 20 minutes from Gare du Monaco.

When to Get There

The garden is open from 9am to 5:45pm or 6:45pm, depending on the season, with the late afternoon being the busiest time. For a more contemplative experience, visit in the morning or early afternoon when there are fewer people. Any time of year is lovely here, as it’s interesting to see the various plants at their different foliage stages.

A Piece of Japan in Monaco
Commissioned by Prince Rainier III, the Japanese Garden was created by the famous Japanese landscape architect Yasuo Beppo, who had won the Grand Prix at the Flower Exhibition of Osaka in 1990. The garden features a number of structures and decorative accessories imported from Japan, yet the plants in the garden—mostly pine, olive, and pomegranate trees—are all Mediterranean, and Beppo trimmed them to give them a Japanese appearance.
Address: 5 Avenue Princesse-Grace, 98000, Monaco
