Shinjuku Gyoen spreads over 58.3 hectares, and presents a unique blend of Western and Japanese elements. The Prime Minister holds a cherry-viewing party in this garden every year. There are over 1500 cherry blossom trees in three different garden styles - Japanese, English, and French. Many different flowers bloom all year round. The Japanese garden features carp swimming below a long bridge that stretches over a pond, and has two teahouses that serve tea and snacks. On the weekend, many families enjoy spending time together in the broad open fields. (Please note, pets and toys are not allowed.)

  • Shinjuku Gyoen park is a very ethereal park right in the hustle and bustle of Shinjuku. It's great to visit in each of the four seasons.

  • When you start to feel overwhelmed by the size, speed, and intensity of day-to-day Tokyo, the gardens are an oasis of natural calm. I was especially fond of the Japanese gardens and the Tea house. The large open spaces of the lawn areas are also a great way to decompress from the claustrophpobic urban canyon of Shinjuku. Highly recommended.

It closes surprisingly early (especially since the hanami parties in other parks go until last train) and remember that it is closed on Mondays. I've tried to go to this park twice and not been admitted, once on account that it wa... Read More

  • This garden is a nice escape from the bustling Shinjuku area. The garden, located near Shinjuku station, is easy to get to with many signs pointing the way. It costs only 200 yen to enter and you receive a recyclable ticket which prints the date on it in a reusable fashion (See the photo in the photo section). I liked this reusable ticket and the environmental friendliness of the park. Upo... Read More
