Such a beautiful and peaceful park next to super crowded areas. Nice ponds, various areas with different flowers. Just relaxing walk, so near to public transport. Entry only 200¥.

This place is wonderful for a couple of hours away from the city atmosphere. The Japanese garden is beautiful, we spent ages on the little bridges just watching the fish and terrapins. It is definitely worth the small entrance fee, it's beautifully kept. The greenhouse...More

Tokyo is such a vibrant city that it's so easy to get overwhelmed with its energy. The perfect antidote to it all is a visit to the Shinjuku Gyoen gardens. It's a short stroll from Shinjuku station and an inexpensive attraction (Y 200). If you...More

You must visit this garden. Complete zen and relaxation. Beautifully tended. Photographer's dream. Artists can be found sittings quietly sketching. No picnic rugs unfortunately but there is a small hut to sit down and rest.

Very peaceful, and well laid out garden. If you have time, in Tokyo, and you are close to Shinjuku station, do see it

Well kept gardens with plenty of variety and charm. Not far from busy Shinjuku Station. Unfortunately the tea houses need to be booked in advance.

It's a beautiful place, even without the Sakuras blooming. Take your time, breath, and relax on the hills while enjoying the view

This was an excellent way to spend a couple hours on a sunny afternoon. Take a picnic if you can and prepare for lots of great portrait spots.

Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and
contains the busiest train station in the world. To
the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo
Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the
east, there’s a district with long-established
department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku
Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the
Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for

Yes my Japanese friends say August is hot and humid. Can't tell you how to get there. Google map it from where you will be staying.
Hi, I have only 2 days to go around Tokyo. What's the ideal number of hours should I spend here in Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden? Within the same day I also want to visit Meiji Jingu & Shibuya. Thanks

Meiji and Shibuya are on Yamanote line, several stops from Shinjuku. Both parks invite you to take your time. You could do all three, I would end the day at Shibuya and have dinner.
Is it worth seeing after the cherry blossoms bloom and fall? We'd be there April 10... and usually that is after full bloom.

I would say yes. I went in January and it was still gorgeous with lots of photo oops. There are thousands of plants, trees and flowers in this park. The cherry blossoms are just icing on the cake;)
