Shinjuku Gyoen garden

Shinjuku Gyoen gardenShinjuku Gyoen is a national garden, and is located just north of JR Sendagaya station and about 0.8 km southeast of JR Shinjuku station.

In 1872, the Meiji govenment set up a agricultural experimental station in this broad site.
And the study of the cultivation of many fruits, vegitables and flowers had been conducted here, so it was contributed much to the Japan's agricultural development. After the important function had been finished, here was rebuilt as current garden in 1906.

In this garden, there are Japanese, British-style and French-style gardens.
Over 10 thousand trees are in this garden, and about 1,300 of them are cherry blossoms.
So here is one of major cherry blossom-viewing spots in Tokyo.
And in the first half of November every year, the exhibition of cultivated chrysanthemums are held here.

This garden has the south gate near JR Sendagaya station and the north gate near Shinjuku-Gyoen-mae on Marunouchi Line (subway).
