≪Autumn Foliage Spots≫ Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden
Enjoy the view of each autumn in three gardens
The garden has a huge area which covers 58.7 hectares in Shinjuku Shintoshin, and it represents a rare format for Japanese landscape gardens, skillfully combining three very different styles; French formal style, Japanese, and British landscape garden styles. The densely growing trees now number more than 20,000, and special varieties never seen in Japan before such as tulip trees, plane trees, and Himalayan cedar trees can be seen here, creating an entirely individual and rare sight with their immense size.
In autumn, various autumn foliage can be seen in the wide garden.
The beautiful scenery which the vivid Japanese maple (Momiji) of Japanese Traditional Garden reflects in the pond is particularly popular.
Also, you can enjoy autumn scenery reminiscent of Europe in the sycamore tree-lined of the French Formal Garden and enjoy the coloring of the trees such as the tulip tree and the metasequoia on the wide lawn in the British Landscape Garden. In addition to that, there are many places to see such as ginkgo and bald cypress (Rakuusho), so please take a good and careful walk.
