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.

Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden Reviews
夕方に行ったら、閉園まであまり時間がありませんでした。 でも、たくさんのバラが咲いていてとてもきれいでした。 桜の時期にも行ってみたいです。 more »When I went there in the evening, I didn't have much time until the park closed. However, a lot of roses were in bloom and it was very beautiful. I want to go there at the time of cherry blossoms.
Nice garden for a morning walk. Took us an hour to cover as some areas are being refurbished. Enjoyed the green house which displayed a lot of different tropical herbs and plants. 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.
