Love the Japanese garden. That's all I saw. The park closes at 4:30 pm. Make sure to go in early to be able to see everything. Very accessible to trai.

When we first went to Tokyo to see a cherry blossoms we were wondering what is the best place for it. So Shinjuku Gyoen is definitely the place where you should go and enjoy sakura. I believe it worth going at any season though. Very clean, very beautiful, so nice to walk there and enjoy marvelous nature around you. Must... More

An excellent experience. You can spend a whole afternoon. Take your own lunch box and relax and enjoy your drink (no alcohol allowed in the gardens). Do not miss

we were here on the golden weekend and the entrance fee was waived, norm was 200 yen. very peaceful and beautiful garden within the mass city life of Shinjuku. bring your own bento and drinks is recommended.

A lovely place to go to get away from the noise, traffic and crowds. The park is beautiful and well maintained. The Japanese gardens are especially worth seeing. It's a great place to bring a picnic and relax. Closed Mondays. Entry Y200.

It is Sunday morning and many places are closed in the city. we assumed that the park would be crowded, but it was nearly empty. Plan on about 2 hours for a casual walk around the park. It is now mid July so only a few flowers can be seen in the park, but if you walk through the greenhouse... More

Impressive gardens, you could easily spend the entire day exploring! The gardens were complimented the Tokyo skyline also, an amazing place for stunning photos. But keep your eye on the time as it does shut around 4:30!
