Nature trip in the middle of a city? If you're looking for a place to eat and do sightseeing, you've come to the right place. Family-friendly, the cherryblossoms are so surreal. They have tons of different trees and flowers inside (educational for the kids, too!) I went here with my husband and daughters - adults must pay an entrance fee of 500 yen (worth it!) and my daughters got in for free (they were 7 and 3 year old). If you don't have food with you, they have vending machines, restaurants and stores inside. For people who want to take a break from the busy hustle of the city, this is the place to be.

Less crowded than the Yoyogi Park, the Gyoen National garden is absolutely beautiful with different areas, decors and ambiance. You have to pay a fee to enter the park so better to go there for few hours, the time to go all around the park and enjoy it fully.

Located in the center of Tokyo right after the New-York-style shopping-buildings this garden will immerge you in the zen atmosphere only Japanese people master. The garden is so huge that you don't see the city once you're in. No car-noise and you won't be too close to anybody because this special place is not that harrassed by tourists. Be sure to take a look at the tropical greenhouse, full of wonderful trees and flowers.

Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is perhaps the most beautiful garden in Tokyo, nestled in the heart of Shinjuku/Shibuya within walking distance of Shinjuku Station, this garden to me exemplifies a large Japanese garden, once the private garden of the Naitō family in the Edo period it is now under the management of the Imperial Household Agency of Japan. Autumn is a wonderful time to visit gardens in Japan, the combination of beautiful coloured foliage and stunning landscaping and vistas combine to give garden lovers an experience not to be missed, the garden is built around three lakes with plenty of paths to lead you on to one wonderful view after another, then a tea house or pavilion and then past sculpted beds of shrubs, across bridges and when finaly you need to rest you can sit at one of the cafes and enjoy a snack whilst contemplating the beauty of Japan.

This is a huge beautiful garden right in the middle of Tokyo. Good to visit in any season. Probably best in fall and spring. Quite nice place to have a photography session too.
