Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden – One Of The Best Places to see Cherry Blossoms

By Wilbur Suen

Shinjuku Gyoen National Park is a massive and beautiful place to be if you want to get close to nature. Shinjuku is one of Tokyo’s busiest places but right here in Shinjuku Gyoen, it is exactly the opposite. It really is a spot of peace in the busy city.

Shinjuku Gyoen was originally created specifically for the Imperial family. It is 58.7 hectares in size and it consists of 3 types of gardens, i.e. English Landscape Garden, French Formal Garden and Japanese Traditional Garden.

There’s an entrance fee of 200¥ for adult and 50¥ for children.

In Shinjuku Gyoen, there are 20000 trees from around the world and you can find beautiful flora and fauna all around.

It is also the place to go if you want to see cherry blossoms. I specifically visited Shinjuku Gyoen on my second last day of the trip which was in March. I thought that leaving it to the last day meant I had a higher chance of seeing cherry blossoms! So did I manage to catch any?

Yes, I did catch the cherry blossoms! In Shinjuku Gyoen, they have some early and late cherry blommers, good for those who can’t be there during the cherry blossom season!

Enjoy the photos!
