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.

We visited this park on our last day in Tokyo and it was one of our favorite experiences of our visit. It was very peaceful and beautiful. We walked the entire perimeter (took a little over an hour) and highlights for us were the greenhouse, the multiple ponds, the Taiwanese pavilion, and the rose garden. I’m sure there is more that we would have enjoyed if we spent more time there! It looks like a great place for a picnic. Admission is 500 yen per adult.

I've got to hand it to Tokyo. Among all the chaos and crowds, they maintain beautiful gardens like this one right in the middle of all of the action.

It's a small walk from Shinjuku station, a cheap entrance fee, and acres and acres of peaceful tranquility.

Grab a free map at the front (near the restrooms) so you can navigate all the paths and ponds and find the teahouse.

You could easily spend all day here. For me it was the perfect spot to get my fill of fresh air and traditional Japanese gardens on my last day in Tokyo.
A beautiful garden and likely the place to see the cherry blossoms. Filled with locals and tourists. Nice ponds of water with fish! Make sure to check the flower "round". Holds some incredible roses and unique floral arrangements.

Enjoy japan!

If you love nature, this is it. Many spots for good pictures and for resting as well. I'm pretty sure you can bring in food or drinks. Also there is an entry fee. Group/Student discounts are available. Also, I think some of the attractions within the park such as the green tea house cost extra. Overall, still a very nice place to visit.

It was really pretty. We ate lunch here and didn't stay too long, but what we experienced was definitely worth the 500 yen entrance fee. The greenhouse was absolutely stunning. I only wish we had more time to explore. I think that going here, you need at least a couple hours of free time.

Amazing park to walk around. Shinjuku is one of the most busiest places I’ve visited however the park is a nice break from all the people and gives you a chance to reconnect with nature and relax. If you are in Shinjuku please visit. Great place for a picnic too!

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。
