Garden

Shinjuku Gyoen was originally an Edo period samurai residence, then converted to a private garden for the Imperial Family. In the present day, it is open to the public.
The large 58.3-hectare grounds are separated into three distinctive gardens: a Japanese garden, a French-style garden, and an English landscape garden. The gardens are also considered some of the most famous modern-day western-styled gardens.
There is also a large greenhouse where you can see rare plants from both Japan and across the world.
Visitors can enjoy the blooms of around 1,000 cherry blossom trees during spring, and gorgeous autumn leaves in the fall.

Highlights

  • Chosen as one of “Japan’s 100 Best Cherry Blossom Locations” thanks to its 1,000 cherry trees.

    很漂亮的庭園,不同風格的區域有各種樣式花可欣賞,佔地面積廣闊,散步走又舒服也愜意。

  • Robix Chen

    很難得在繁華的市中心能夠擁有這麼一大片花海,庭園造景維護的很完善,門票才200日圓,相當佛心的價格。
