The Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is an urban oasis. This place was designed as imperial garden in early 20th century and later converted to a public park. The main attractions include three types of gardens (English, French and Japanese) with seasonal flowers and trees, and a huge green house featuring tropical plants.

This is a truly peaceful place with greenery, ponds and birds, making you forget the hurly-burly of city life. You can enjoy cherry blossoms in spring, picnic lunch on the lawn in summer and autumn, and relaxing moment in the warm green house in winter.

If you want a reprieve from the crowds around Shinjuku this is a good place to get away from it all. Entry is 500 yen which I guess is reasonable given what it must cost to upkeep the grounds, although I saw more beautiful grounds around free entry shrines and temples in Kyoto. The middle of autumn is probably a good time to visit when the leaves turn. The greenhouse section is worth a visit to see some interesting plants and flowers. A little oasis of relative peace in otherwise chaotic Tokyo.

This is one of the most beautifully presented gardens in Japan. Everything is culturally at balance with nature here, you can't help but be relaxed and at peace.

It's very clean and has a true representation of Japan clean, balanced and intricate. It is a must see when visiting Tokyo. The garden features a variety of cafe's and souvenir shops to stop by and scope out a good amount of items.

The Garden is open early now, we arrived about 8:30am and walked around while it was nice and cool out. There are many paths with beautiful trees and flowers. The green house was my favorite area with so many colorful flowers, it opens at 9:30. Don't miss it if you go! There are drink vending machines and plenty of restrooms along the way. We really enjoyed the park!

If you're in Shinjuku you have to visit this park. Immaculate grounds, great nature spaces. Massive open, but well maintained, lawns. Beautiful traditional Japanese garden area too. You can easily spend several hours in here. It costs a few hundred yen, 500 I believe for adults, but well worth the admission. Come on a nice day!

Absolutely beautiful park. Its about 100 yen to enter (if i remember correctly) and there is an information center at the entrance where you can see a display of many seeds, nuts, leaves, and insects found within the park. They also provide maps, and there is a little cafe. The park itself is gorgeous and the trails wind around the various sections. There are many old trees which are stunning to look at. If you are in the area, its a must to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

Last November, was too great. Is located in the city centre so quiet and nice place, worth a visit! I went to the season of autumn tour leaves, gardens are dyed in red and yellow, it's so beautiful. Let me impress the greenhouse, which is full of tropical and subtropical plants, people are different.

去年11月去的,真是太赞了。位于市中心会却有这么宁静而怡人的地方,很值得一去!我去的时候正值秋季赏红叶的季节,庭园里几乎都被染成了红色和黄色的,真是太美了。让我印象深刻的还有温室,里面满是热带和亚热带植物,让人大开眼界。

Since the station walk about 15 minutes to reach Shinjuku Imperial garden, it is an oasis in the city, within the vast gardens planted with flowers and trees, we can but people forget the noise of the city, enjoying the natural place. When I was in late March, was the cherry blossoms in full bloom period, very beautiful, is large in scale, are spectacular, and there are a lot of people to cherry.

自新宿站步行大约15分钟就能到达新宿御苑,这是一片城市中的绿洲,广阔的庭园内种满了各种花草树木,是可却让人暂时忘却城市的嘈杂,享受大自然的地方。我去的时候是三月下旬,正是樱花盛开的时期,非常漂亮,规模也很大,很壮观,有很多人来赏樱。

Shinjuku Imperial gardens in Tokyo cherry blossoms in San Diego, here used to be against people's Royal Queen's gardens. But is now fully open to the public, free entry to the garden party. Within the vast gardens, designed a Western style, Japan-style and Chinese-style gardens. Absolute sanctuary is. Apart from flowers in the Park walking, feeling the air, the environment is so refreshing.

新宿御园是东京赏樱花的圣地,这里过去曾是禁止一般人入场的皇室御用庭园。但现在完全对市民开放,可以随便入内游园。广阔的庭园内,设计有西洋风格、日本风格和中国风格的庭园。绝对是都会中的世外桃源。赏花之余在园内信步漫游,空气、环境真是让人感觉神清气爽。
