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.

  • Fantastic Asian culture and landscape! Beautiful gardens, bridges. The greenhouse is really cool with beautiful tropical plants and flowers. In the cemetery of the gardens there is a Starbucks...

  • After a very heavy first night in Japan, I headed here to wander through the beautiful gardens. If anything is going to clear your head and help give you clarity in life it is this place! Sitting on the grass and looking into the distance you can see the city of Japan and it's beautiful skyline of buildings. The park was so quiet and serene, with so many pretty flowers and greenery. I remember many times in Japan on my trip, but this place was definitely one of them. Loved it
  • One of my favorite park in Tokyo. Huge amount of open space and tons of well maintained trees and greens and different types of flowers. We saw lots of roses late autumn still. But we missed most of the foliage. If you want a quick escape from this big city, this is a must go. Best for picnic on a mild sunny day. You also see there are couple coffee and tea shops to relax a bit.
