“Best cherry blossom in Tokyo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I were disappointed when we learned that we would arrive at Tokyo too late to view the cherry blossom. We were so happy when we saw the beautiful cherry blossoms in Shinjuku Gyeon. Shinjuku Gyeon is definitely the highlight of our Tokyo trip.

“A must during cherry blossom season”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

It was amazing to be in this park during cherry blossom season and such a contrast to the frenetic energy and neon lights in Shinjuku in the evening. It was nice to see the locals enjoying spring through hanami.

“Awesome place for hanami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We went during the cherry blossom season and it was so, so beautiful! We insisted on going there after learning that there are many different species of cherry blossoms there, just in case we miss the peak of some species as different species may bloom at different times. It was the right choice going there. It's clean and the grounds are simple perfect for picnics!

“Peace in a busy city”

Strange to be in the middle of such a busy city and to find such beauty and peacefull surroundings.

A great park to escape to and especially wonderfull during Cherry Blossom season.
