Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden

Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden


Shinjuku Gyoen was originally created as a garden for the Imperial Family in 1906. The property is currently open to the public as a national park, harmonizing both European and Japanese styles. Besides the tea house and restaurant, the park also contains buildings related to the Imperial household.
Shinjuku Gyoen is one of Tokyo’s largest and most popular parks for strolling or admiring the flowering shrubs and foliage. In spring it is a popular location for viewing cherry blossoms, in autumn people gather to see the maple leaves, and in November it hosts an exquisite chrysanthemum exhibit.
