The park is almost hidden a few hundred meters from Shinjuku Station. It is a mix of open grass fields perfect for picnics (buy tasty food in Isetan close by), ponds with koi, more classical Japanese garden and a greenhouse. I highly recommend it.

Went on a whim to visit the park the morning we had to fly out. Loved it! What a well-kept park. It is very quiet with nice trails. It is about 200jpy to enter!

We were lucky enough to visit the garden in the snow and it was magical. I can only imagine how beautiful it is when things are in bloom. Well worth checking out.

This gem of a garden in the heart of the city is a welcome respite from the rush of Tokyo and a way to experience a different side of the big city. It was beautifully landscaped and maintained for a relaxing and restful experience.
