Shinjuku Gyoen Park is a large, 144 acre park, located close to Shinjuku station. It is an urban island of Japan's seasonal beauty and comprises three different gardens, with sprawling lawns and several walking paths. At Shinjuku-Gyoen, you can experience authentic Japanese garden in the middle of Tokyo without going too far. One unique thing about this park is the the view of Tokyo when sitting on the grass. There is also a beautiful bridge over the pond where you can feel like it's 100 years ago. During early April, it is one of the most popular spots in all of Tokyo to see cherry blossoms (Hanami).
The park was originally the residence of a feudal lord during the Edo period, which is from 1603-1867. It was later transformed into a botanical garden before becoming the private property of the Imperial Family around the outbreak of World War II. Although it was almost obliterated during the war, it was later rebuilt as a public park and reopened in its current form in 1949.

One of the best parks in Tokyo! It's very spacious and is great for cherry blossom viewing. I believe it costs 200 yen to enter. You cannot bring alcohol in.
