The park is about 15 minutes walk from Shinjuku Train station. There is a small entrance fee to the park. The queue was long but very fast. So we managed to get in after waiting for 10 minutes. I have 3 grandchildren with me and...More
We have a family tradition of picnics in the park while travelling. While not set up with tables and chairs we found a park bench and enjoyed our picnic, with some amusement from locals. Walked the whole park and loved it, although it is a...More
Such a peaceful place, considering the big city life on the outside. 200 yen per person entry fee and well worth it. Seems like a small space at first, but if gets bigger at every turn. We spent about 90 minutes exploring the lakes, gardens...More
Very beautiful, very large park. It’s a perfect place to relax in the middle of a busy city, but I’d definitely recommend checking opening times and planning out your visit if you want to walk through the whole thing. (We got in the afternoon and...More
We enjoyed a lovely walk around here one Saturday afternoon. The Garden was beautiful with autumn colours when we went - a stunning oasis in the middle of the city. There is also a greenhouse to explore with tropical flowers.

Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. 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. It is quite famous as a venue for
cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.

Hey Nick, tourist attractions in Japan are always very busy (compared to Australia) and this park is no exception. The day of the week might make a big difference so I’d suggest maybe a weekday over a weekend. If you arrive around opening time I’d suggest that the north western end of the park would be a good place to check out. It has a good path for walking, some wide open grassy seating areas and more private enclosed areas too. I’d recommend just going for a walk around the park and I’m sure the right place and time will reveal itself to you. Hope that helps. Good luck!
