Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kanto / Tokyo Prefecture / Tokyo / Shinjuku / Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden
Originally constructed for the private residence of "daimyo" (feudal lord) Naito in the Edo period, Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden has served as a public park under the Ministry of the Environment since its reconstruction after World War II. Tour the park to see its three main sections: a traditional Japanese garden dotted with ponds intercepted by islands and bridges; a symmetrically planned French garden; and an English garden with sweeping lawns and cherry blossom trees. Stop by the greenhouse to inspect the permanent and special exhibits of tropical flowers.

Absolutely beautiful gardens. Kept in pristine condition. So worth the very cheap entry fee, and a great way to escape the noise and the activity of downtown Tokyo! more »
Great open garden in the bustling Shinjuku precinct surrounded by several fish ponds, encircled by skyscrapers. I visited during the chrysanthemum exhibition in autumn and the multitude of colours of flowers and trees were dazzling. Many locals come here to enjoy the fresh air and space, exercise, painting,even for weddings.
Very nice and peaceful park. Even being in the middle of all the tall buildings it still quiet and away from the city noise. Everything is pretty and very well maintained. I just enjoy walking around and resting here. I love it.
