Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden

By Lisa Wallin

Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is located on the same site as the private residence of an Edo period feudal lord called Kiyonari Naito, who was a vassal to shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa.

The area was completed as an imperial garden in 1906 and has been a leader in horticultural innovation in Japan ever since.

Its 58.3 hectares (144 acres) makes it one of the largest green spaces in Tokyo and the area features a French formal garden, an English landcape garden, and a Japanese traditional garden.

There are over 10,000 trees here, including the first tulip trees, Himalayan cedars, and bald cypresses to be planted in Japan.

This spacious garden is a fantastic place to spend an afternoon exploring the various areas and plants within.
