With its 144 acres, Shinjuku Gyoen is one of the largest parks in Tokyo, along with the gardens of the Imperial Palace and Yoyogi Park. A few hundred meters from Shinjuku and Yoyogi train 🚅 stations, it spreads until Sendagaya.

With more than 20,000 trees (!), Shinjuku Gyoen is famous for its 1,500 cherry trees which come in three kinds of sakura 🌸, blooming from mid-March to late April. Pictures displayed in this article were taken on a March 10!

Another specificity of Shinjuku Gyoen is that it contains both a Japanese-style garden and French / English gardens. The walk is long and relaxing, and allows a real break in a Tokyo that never sleeps.
