Lovely quiet gardens, tucked away amongst the busy streets of Shinjuku. Not quite as beautiful as some gardens in places like Kyoto but still very nice to walk around on a sunny day in April.

Was lucky enough to be here during cherry blossom season and this park was spectacular. Worth the 200 yen entrance fee to wander around and enjoy the scenery. Seemed to be a popular place for children to run around wide grassy areas while parents relaxed.

Good place to go with friends for a picnic on the lawn. There is also a kind of Western tearoom at the entrance and a Japanese tea house on the grounds.

A national garden so beautiful I didn't want to leave. It closes as early as 1600hrs in the afternoon. This garden is practically used within picnic groups especially during the peak season in Spring, simply bring your mat, buy your snacks & drinks to enjoy the scenery. The amount of sakura trees is massive & the view of them is... More

Lots of walking through gorgeous landscaping in the midst of Tokyo Bring a camera. Interestingly, the "exotic" plants in the fabulous greenhouse were many that I grow in my California yard.
