Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, Tokyo Overview

One of the most spacious parks in Japan, the Shinjuku Gyoen Park is a picturesque escape from the urban jungle surrounding it.

Shinjuku Gyoen is steeped in history, created at the time of the Edo Period, was kept as a botanical garden for the royal family of Japan. It is composed of three kinds of gardens: the first one, a traditional Japanese garden, with large ponds. A chrysanthemum exhibit is held every November in this garden, and it is great for photography and horticultural enthusiasts alike. The other main gardens include a French and English styled garden, with sprawling lawns and a beautiful greenhouse, home to many tropical plants. The highlight of the Shinjuku Gyoen, however, is its collection of large cherry trees. From March to April, over 400 varieties of cherry blossoms are in full bloom, which turns this into a beautiful spot for cherry-blossom viewing, and is a must-visit for any tourist in Tokyo.
