This is a very lovely garden over a huge area. Allow a couple of hours to wander. There are late variety cherries here if you arrive later in April.

Am a huge fan of Japanese gardens so I had to see that. Loved it. Take a map, stroll, stop fo an ice cream - green tea :) and enjoy the beauty.

Absolutely Loved this place- wayyyy better than Yoyogi park. Shinjuku gyoen will give you a true local Tokyo feel on a weekend. People enjoying picnics, kids running about and plenty cherry blossom to spot. And yet you'll find our own quiet spot in these huge...More

The garden was beautifully presented and well maintained. We saw it while walking through the Shinjuku region and I can't remember how much it cost but it would have only been around 200Y each. Really good garden to walk around lazily and spend an hour...More

I really wanted to see this garden. Unfortunately, I decided an early morning visit would beat the heat and I didn't check beforehand. The garden doesn't open till 9am and closes at 4:30pm. I was there around 7:30am and there is a 200 yen admission....More

I recommend every one see this garden. The place goes for miles and there are a lot of different stunning feature to lay your eyes upon. Everything is just so green and well kept. It is well worth the ¥200 per person entry fee.

contains the busiest train station in the world. To

Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the
east, there’s a district with long-established

Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the
Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for

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

You can buy a bento box and get your lunch in the park. 1h it's fine i guess, then move directly to Shibuya. Is not so far

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;)
Hello. My wife and I are going to Tokyo the second half of march. Wonder what kind of weather we should expect and would we be able to see some cherry blossom?
