Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden

In 1906, Shinjuku Gyoen was constructed as a garden for the Imperial Household on the site of a private mansion belonging to Lord Naito, a daimyo (feudal lord) of the Shinshu Takato Clan of the Edo era. It became a national garden open to the public in May 1949, and it has remained so to this day. Combining the style of a traditional Japanese garden with the styles of a French formal garden and an English landscape garden, Shinjuku Gyoen is an expansive green oasis in the middle of Shinjuku.
