Shinjuku Gyoen National GardenLike food, Japanese gardens are fascinating piece of work. Entire Tokyo is full of beautiful and peaceful parks and gardens, perfectly manicured trees and public spaces. One such example is the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, 144 acres of green space, which one of the largest and most popular park in Tokyo. The garden is peaceful and relaxing escape from the busy life of Tokyo. Three different types of gardens – traditional Japanese, French Formal, and English Garden, make Shinjuku Gyoen a perfect place to visit and relax in a holiday. The park also has a beautiful greenhouse with many tropical and subtropical flowers. Shinjuku Gyoen is very popular during Spring due to cherry blossoms. I was lucky enough to see few early blossoms in the park.
