Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden - Review

Originally the residence of a royal family during the Edo era, Shinjuku Gyoen is one of the most beautiful gardens in the country. The lawns are lush green and with trees that are changing color in fall or pink during spring. The garden is a blend of 3 landscaping styles of the French Formal Garden, English Landscape Garden and Japanese Traditional Garden that together bring in a flavour that is unique and a new level of relaxing. It is an oasis in the city of Tokyo. The Greenhouse as a collection of plants and trees from around Japan and has been contributing to a wide range of plant life in the city.

It is the ideal place for Flower viewing season i.e. Spring when the Cherry blossoms are in full bloom and when the season change and the leaves change colour. It is relaxing with its water features. It is a good picnic spot and perfect for photography buffs.

  • It's a truly beautiful garden that takes features from the East and West and blends them together wonderfully in a single space. Having arrived at 330 while the gates closed at 430, our visit was rushed, but we got to enjoy sections of the park where there were nearly no people! This is truly a must visit if you're in the area, especially since the gate fee is only 200 yen per person. We got really lucky and found the molt of a rhinoceros beetle! I highly recommend making the visit here!

  • Our 1st time and also 1st experience with a Japanese Garden and viewing up close of the Cherry Blossom. Great place for a walk (and picnic) with family and friends, and for tourists too. Was a little early in the season as there were still some trees that were not fully blossomed but we had a wonderful time. Spent a few hours in the park admiring the vast open space, the flora and fauna. Great place to visit.

  • Such a beautiful park. There is a fee to enter but is well worth it. The day i went there were a bunch of school children, over 200, doing paintings. There were a few small places selling food and of course vending machines for drinks. What a peaceful park to visit, wish I would have seen the flowers blossoming.

  • This garden is really large and has beautiful landscaping. Because of its size and because they charge money for admission and don't allow alcohol, it's not too crowded during cherry blossom season. It's a great place to come for a chill picnic or to walk around and take pictures. There is a little shop in the garden that sells snacks and drinks, and there are many wonderful photo spots. Easily walkable from several train stations in the area.

  • This garden is beautiful. Totally worth the ¥200!! You can spend hours wandering and taking pictures. The fields are covered in people taking naps, having picnics, it's amazing. It is busy, but never feels too crowded, and there is always a fun path you can wander down and be alone. The greenhouse is a must visit as well, the exotic plants and waterfall. It's so much fun.
