Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden 新宿御苑

This park is absolutely beautiful. I'm not much of a park or nature person, but even I loved it. With only a small fee of 200 yen, you can see so many different gardens, relax, and get great pictures for your social media. English maps are also available if you ask.

Also, there are giant crows and ants that look like they could take off your head as you go further in, so do beware of those.

A gorgeous, vast park filled with various gardens in varying styles, from English to traditional Japanese.
There are vending machines and a visitor snack concession stand that also sells souvenirs .

This is a lovely park, very big and a lot of beautiful photo spots. It costs 200yen to enter the park but is a must visit, especially during the cherry blossom and autumn seasons!
