We visited this park whilst on our first honeymoon stop in Tokyo. I'm so glad we come here why a beautiful quiet and tranquil place in a busy city. We had such a lovely morning walking around and viewing all the landscape. This is one place I will remember in years to come

Shinjuku is so busy and this garden provides a calm escape. We took the train to Sendagaya, 2 stops from Shinjuku on the Chuo local line, and then walked through the garden to Shinjuku. The garden is peaceful and beautiful. The greenhouse is a must visit. There is a small entry fee and a coffee shop inside the garden.

Went during the cherry blossom season - and while entertaining to see a lot of older Japanese people crowding around with giant cameras for the best picture of a blossom, there were quieter parks with just as lovely of things to see in Tokyo.

I felt a little overwhelmed when I tried to get around the Shinjuku station, so I took a time out by coming here for a breather. It's a nice quiet garden with lots of flowers and a restaurant that sells bentos for a nice snack. The paths are easy to follow and they have map guides around the park so... More

We were there while the Sakura (cherry blossom) trees were still in full bloom. It was simply beautiful! The Japanese certainly know how to design their gardens!

I made a small 4K Video of the park if you want to have a quick pick before going https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gn6hpf_2780 Credited as one of the most beautiful parks in Tokyo, Shinjuku Gyoen is definitely another place to enjoy when visiting Tokyo. The garden was completed in 1772 and was the original residence of the Naitō family during the Edo era.... More

Took my daughter on a overcast afternoon. Only 200yen to enter, easy to get to from the train station, and beautiful. Great paths, bathrooms available, food stops (simple stuff), aling the way. The greenhouse was really near, my 4 yr old loved the flowers. Great place to picnic in nice weather but no sporting equipment allowed. Great afternoon activity in... More

Very nicely kept and well maintained gardens - bang in middle of a bustling city. Go in mornings to avoid queues- though its not much of bother anyway. Sometimes it is closed due to mosquito / dengue scare. Pls check in advance.

Visited this garden which was close to our hotel. We spent a good three hours strolling through the grounds. There is a French garden, English garden and Japanese garden as well as a greenhouse with orchids and tropical plants. We visited in October when the leaves were beginning to turn and the chrysanthemums were on display. It was a most... More
