Shinjuku Gyoen: The Tale of Two Seasons

3 comments

Staying in Shinjuku for all of my three trips to Tokyo gave me the opportunity to return to the beautiful Shinjuku Gyoen as many times as I want, and I made sure I went there once during my first spring visit, in 2012, and back there when I return in Autumn 2013. Although I never get to witness the garden in its full cherry blossom or its autumn colours glory, it was still amazing… for 200 yen. I really recommend to whoever is going the visit the garden to just buy a bento set from the nearby Takashimaya food market, or a few onigiris from a convenient store, find a bench, and eat a slow lunch while watching people enjoying themselves in the garden.
