General information:
The Shinjuku Gyoen is a large garden, it is famous for its many cherry trees and cherry blossom watching (hanami) but the park is beautiful in every season. With the skyscraper at the background modern Tokyo is never far away.

The garden was built by a feudal lord during the Edo Period (1603-1867), later is was transformed into a botanical garden and transferred to the Imperial family in 1903. During WOII the garden was destroyed and rebuilt after the WOII and reopened in 1949 for the Tokyo people. There are three type of gardens and a greenhouse with (sub)tropical plants and flowers. 1. Japanese landscape garden with islands, bridges and pavilions (Kyu Goryotei pavilion which was built for the wedding of the Showa Emperor). 2. French garden 3. English landscape garden, with open lawns Our favorite was the Japanese landscape garden and of course the many cherry trees, it was rather busy in the garden and we had to queue before the entrance because they checked everybody on alcoholic beverages, which was forbidden. One has to pay a small fee before entering the park.
