Why locals love it

Best place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Shinjuku! You can enjoy walking, observing a variety of plants, watching birds in this big park constructed on the site of a private mansion of a feudal lord in the old time, which was once an imperial garden.

Why you should visit it

You can see different types of gardens – English, French and Japanese, as well as a green house. There are also restaurants and teahouse serving "maccha (Japanese green tea)". You can get free park maps at the entrance or in the information center.

Special tip

Great place for cherry blossom viewing and picnics. You can buy nice foods at Isetan (famous department store) or shops neaby. *Alcohol isn't allowed.
