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.

the park was awash with gorgeous shades of green, orange and red in the autumn. there were so many breathtaking views you can spend an entire day here poring over it. upon entering the park, you’ll see this great expanse of lawn-like grass where you get to sit, chill and relax - there were a few groups having a picnic there. really love this place!!! a welcome breath of fresh air in the middle of the city. 10/10 will recommend all to visit while in Tokyo.

Lovely, huge beautiful park in Shinjuku with cherry blossoms still visible even in autumn. Leaves are very colourful and trees are huge. You can spend the day just lay in the park. It's very relaxing. Good experience overall. Highly recommended.

Fantastic. Have been to the garden during autumn 2014 to enjoy autumn leave and spring 2017 to enjoy cherry blossom. Both were unforgettable trips. Its close to many different metro station and walking distance from shinjuku station too. Could see many locals enjoying picnic in the garden. Well done to Shinjuku to making the bustling city green. Also the huge garden is without any garbage which shows how disciplined people are there.

Amazing city park. The entrance fee is 200 per adult person and it's definitely worth it. The park is clean and well maintained. Trees are amazing and the variety of plants makes the park perfect to get lost into the beautiful colors of autumn and foliage.
A must when visiting Tokyo

Good place for tourists and even local. Beautiful garden. There is a green in house in there. You can take map at the entrance gate to see where you interested to go. I walk in this garden for 2 hours but only can cover half of it. Entrance fee about 300 yen.

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。
