As you know, Shinuku is one of the biggest and crowded cities in Tokyo. However it’s in the center, so quite convenient and whatever you can do. If you are real city girls/boys and love a lot of buildings, you can be really enjoyed Shinjuku but if you feel get tired after sightseeing, there is a great place to take relax and feel nature in the central Shinuku!
Shinjuku Gyoen is one of the Tokyo’s largest and most popular parks. Shinjuku Gyoen has gardens, woods, a large and picturesque pond, and hundreds of Sakura (cherry blossom trees) which make Shinjuku Gyoen one of Tokyo’s most popular cherry blossom viewing venues in early April. Shinjuku Gyoen is home to more than 20,000 trees from all over the world and is a nature lover’s delight in the variety and beauty of its Flora.
The park is constructed on the site of the private mansion of the Naito family of feudal lords associated with the Takato domain in Shinano province during the Edo period. So there is very long history!
Shinjuku Gyoen is a Tokyo park where you can feel completely surrounded by immaculately tended natural beauty while still just within earshot of traffic, and still within view of the skyline punctuated with towers. Shinjuku Gyoen includes a French formal garden, an English landscape garden, a Japanese traditional garden, a “Mother and Child Forest”, a maple hill, an azalea hill, several ponds, and a Taiwan Pavilion. Beautiful flowers bloom all year always round! Interesting? Please check it out!
