The Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is one of the largest and busiest park of Tokyo. Located a short walk South-West of the very busy Shinjuku Station it is open to the public for a small fee (200¥). The garden’s walkways peacefully meander through flowers and ponds in high contrast to the adjacent, ultra-modern business district. In early spring, it becomes a prime location for enjoying Cherry Blossoms.
Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese. View all posts by Gaijin San
