Shinjuku Gyoen

Melding traditional Japanese, French, and English landscaping, Shinjuku Gyoen’s 2000 trees make for a peaceful green space within Tokyo, particularly as they are backed by bustling Shinjuku’s skyscrapers.

The garden – once designated as an Imperial Garden and only opened to the public after the Second World War – is wonderful place to stroll amidst a surprising variety of plants and flowers.
