Shinjuku Gyoen is a garden in the heart of shinjuku where visitors can enjoy a variety of styles including a Japanese garden, French-style landscaped garden and English landscape garden.

The garden was originally created as an imperial garden, but was opened as a national park after the war. The former resting place of the imperial family in the garden is designated as an important cultural property.

The park is famous for its beautiful scenery from season to season, especially cherry blossoms in spring and autumn leaves in fall.

There are also events such as nature classes for parents and children and photo and painting exhibitions in the art gallery.
