Over by the Government buildings there is a park that offers walks, seats and cafes and food vans. Very attractive gardens and well kept. Saturdays sees an outdoor second hand or retro markets with great prices.

Very nice relaxing park close to the city. Nice and cool in shaded areas. Very popular at lunch time to sit and relax and eat. No one bothers you.

A pleasant place to spend half an hour after coming out from a visit to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building which overlooks Shinjuku Central (Chuo) Park. The park has plenty of places to sit and relax and has a nice waterfall as well as the historic Shinto 'Kumano Shrine' dating back to 1400AD that is worth a visit.

Nice walk in the early morning listening to cicades ; also saw lots of local people exercise in the early morning demonstrating once again why they live a long life, extremely healthy culture. Restaurants close by and walkable from Shinjuku Station.

When I visited the 'Niagara Falls' was not on and generally the park felt a little neglected (can't think of the right comparison) compared to other parks in the area. Even still I had a good walk around and watched a group of pensioners practice their sword exercises infront of the not working falls. Lots of toilets in the area... More

A little park at the back of the Hyatt Regency. Its clean, has a few paths and statues and worth a run round it BUT I wouldn't travel to see it.

We were staying at a hotel about a mile away (Shinjuku Granbell Hotel) and enjoyed stopping in many shops during the pleasant walk here. We visited during the early afternoon of a work day (Wednesday), so the park itself wasn't very busy. There were several people running around the track or using the small fitness portion of the park, but... More

I run very often and while travelling I need to find running places nearby the hotels where I stay. I was at the Keio Plaza and got the advice to try it. Nice trails, waterfalls (along the outer ring), some ups and downs and, importantly, no huge crowds.

I just so happened to come across this beautiful park and they were having an event called the Tokyo Outside Festival. There was a lot to do and eat. I especially enjoyed this one entertainment where teenagers were bouncing on a wire. I thought that was pretty cool to go flying through the air while doing tricks. I'm not sure... More

To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household.
