This is a really pretty place to relax right in the middle of Tokyo. It's easy to get to, located right next to Shinjuku Station.

Open until 4 am. An amazing park to walk around for just 200 yen. Japanese garden, french garden, glass house... you feel you are somewhere instead of a big city like Tokyo. Good place for a disconnection!

200 yen gets you a nice long calming walk/run. The greenhouse is good, too. There are tea ceremonies you could participate in too, though they weren't running when I was there.

Very big and beautiful place for family. Heart of Tokyo. Very easy to get in. Don't forget to bring your mat for setting in the garden. Bring your baby on Sunday will be more fun.

Very nice garden to explore if visiting Shinjuku. We are interested in this type of exploration, so if you enjoy walking around gardens then this is a place to see with a traditional japanese feel.

Sorry can't help you, we are here now and the leaves are green. I would imagine in the autumn they would turn a different colour, but never been here before.

Yes my Japanese friends say August is hot and humid. Can't tell you how to get there. Google map it from where you will be staying.

Meiji and Shibuya are on Yamanote line, several stops from Shinjuku. Both parks invite you to take your time. You could do all three, I would end the day at Shibuya and have dinner.
