Shinjuku Gyoen （新宿御苑）
The Shinjuku Gyoen is one of the biggest parks in central Tokyo. It features three different garden sections: a Japanese garden with ponds connected by a river, a formal French garden with roses and an alley of plane trees, and an English Landscape garden.
During the Edo period (1603 – 1868), the park was built adjacent to the residence of the Naitō daimyō clan. The actual garden was constructed later during the Meiji and Showa period.
This garden is famous for:
- The different garden styles
- The greenhouse
- The Cherry blossoms
- The Chrysanthemum blossoms
- Picnics on the vast lawn areas
