Particulièrement apprécié, le jardin de Shinjuku attire les japonais, les touristes et les photographes pendant toute la fleuraison des cerisiers.

Particularly popular, the Shinjuku Garden attracts Japanese people, tourists and photographers throughout the cherry blossom season.

Shinjuku-gyoen: Shinjuku Imperial Garden

Shinjuku Garden, nicknamed "urban oasis", is one of the most important parks in the capital. Its fifty-eight hectares and some ten thousand trees provide a real breath of fresh air, just min from the bustling district of Shinjuku. In spring, the park becomes a real attraction when nearly 2000 cherry trees bloom!

  • To the east of the park, the French formal garden contrasts with its symmetry. It was created at the end of the 19th century by the landscaper Henri Martinet who was the steward of the gardens of Versailles. Here it is the multi-colored rosebushes that make it famous and attract photographers.

  • The English landscaped garden, in true British garden style   includes a large area covered with lawns shaded by many trees and surrounded by wild cherry trees. It is the ideal place to rest or have a picnic, especially in the cherry blossom season. Its central tower 30 meters high and covered with tulips is one of the emblems of the park.
