Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden

Travel Guide - 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.
