Not at all a must see spot in Shinjuku, this park is a simple urban oasis, and a nice spot if needing to get out of hotel, or to walk through after a day of meetings. I used it as a running track to start my days. The park is also home to the growing homeless population of Tokyo, but unlike what you may be used to, the temporary homes hidden, and not so hidden, scattered throughout the park are well kept boxes held together by cord or rope and covered with blue tarps. When was the last time you saw shoes placed outside the "front door" or the "front yard" being swept in the morning when talking about a homeless encampment? There is a great park for kids, a waterfalls and a busy city on all sides. Worth a visit if needing some fresh air.
