Shinjuku Gyoen GardenTokyo

The garden has a huge area which covers 58.7 hectares in Shinjuku Shintoshin, and it represents a rare format for Japanese landscape gardens, skillfully combining three very different styles; French formal style, Japanese, and British landscape garden styles. The densely growing trees now number more than 20,000, and special varieties never seen in Japan before such as tulip trees, plane trees, and Himalayan cedar trees can be seen here, creating an entirely individual and rare sight with their immense size. The 1,500 cherry blossom trees are a famous sight in spring, and the summer greens, autumn chrysanthemums and autumnal leaves, and winter greenhouse and landscape provide beautiful fresh air and calm, that feels like an oasis in which the thronging noise of Tokyo could be a million miles away.
