Shinjuku Gyoen is a large and picturesque park located in the Shinjuku ward of Tokyo, Japan. The park is one of the largest and most popular parks in Tokyo, attracting visitors from all over the world. It is a perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy a relaxing day out in nature.

Shinjuku Gyoen is home to three different types of gardens: a traditional Japanese landscape garden, a formal French garden, and an English landscape garden. The park's spacious lawns, meandering walking paths, and tranquil scenery provide a relaxing escape from the busy urban center around it. In spring, Shinjuku Gyoen becomes one of the best places in the city to see cherry blossoms. The park is also home to a large number of cherry trees of more than a dozen different varieties. From late March to early April, more than 400 somei yoshino trees blossom around the English garden, turning the lawns into one of Tokyo's most popular and pleasant hanami spots.

In addition to cherry blossoms, Shinjuku Gyoen is also nice to visit during autumn when the leaves change. There are a lot of different types of trees that change colors around the park, however, the maple trees are particularly beautiful and can be seen in large numbers around the Japanese garden and Momijiyama ("maple mountain") on the park's eastern side. The colors typically appear from mid-November to mid-December.

Shinjuku Gyoen is open from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm every day except Mondays and national holidays. The entrance fee is 500 yen for adults, 250 yen for seniors, and 200 yen for children. The park is easily accessible by public transportation, with Shinjuku Station located just a short walk away.

Shinjuku Gyoen is a must-visit destination for anyone traveling to Tokyo. With its beautiful gardens, tranquil scenery, and convenient location, it is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a day out in nature.
