Visited in the middle of winter so, I am sure it was not at it's best. Need to go again in spring or summer.

This is the quiet part of Shinjuku like Central Park in New York. Park is very good as a hiding spot to be away from the city noise and have a quiet lunch. There is a tea house and garden as well as grass area you can sit and relax.

This is a great park close to Shinjuku. The colors are especially beautiful during autumn. Entry fee is 200 yen and it tends to be slightly crowded over the weekends

We really enjoyed our stroll through the garden. It was so beautiful...even in January! It was also very inexpensive to get in. We only wish we had more time to see the whole garden!

This large park is a quiet retreat surrounded by a busy city of 4 million people. A small admission charge allows one to wander through several different garden themes, over bridges, and around a small lake. Some areas are more wild. Others are very manicured. There is a large grassy area where families can stretch out on blankets and enjoy... More

Just beautiful gardens. We were there for a chrysanthemum exhibit and they were gorgeous displays, some taking a year to create. We go there late so didn't get to spend as much time as we would have liked. Easy to get to with the train.

We came here looking for koyo. What we found, in addition to koyo, was one beautiful fuyuzakura which we had so wanted to see somewhere. Nothing like the sakura in spring, but quite a sight to behold in December. We can only imagine what the garden must be like full of hanami parties as we are used to seeing in... More
