A landscape without towers, roads, buildings, stores or advertising signs can be found in Shinjuku Gyoen National Park, one of the most beautiful parks in Tokyo. There are three sorts of charming gardens - a traditional Japanese-style garden, an English garden and a French garden. On top of that, there is a huge variety of trees, including 1,500 cherry trees, which bloom so nicely in the spring and are very popular in Japan.
Among its paths, bridges, lakes and green cherry trees, along with the traditional Japanese wooden structures and rich scenic landscape, its colorful and multicultural diversity makes this park one of Japan's touching and heartwarming places.
The Shinjuku Gyoen Park, founded on a gigantic 600-acre land, was first opened in 1949. It originated in a Japanese aristocratic dynasty, built in the place where the private castle of Lord Naito was located.
Touring around these park areas is especially relaxing and gives great pleasure to the eyes and soul. It will provide you a green lung in the center of the city, while in the background you can always see the skyline of Tokyo's modern buildings.
