Great Events On All the Time at Japan's Shinjuku gyoen

An Oasis of nature and beauty in central Tokyo

You would never fail to enjoy cherry blossoms at the Shinjuku-gyoen every spring time. Five minute-walk from the south exit of JR Shinjuku will lead you there.

There are Rose festivals and beautiful Autumn colors to enjoy too!

If you are in Shinjuku and want a reprieve from the crowds and busyness, we definitely recommend this expanse of pure natural bliss.
