Cities are my space. I like the speed, the hustle of the traffic and pedestrians. It’s no secret the Jardin du Luxembourg (Paris) is one of my all time favorite spaces. Central Park (New York City) is an amazing, diverse space and now I’m getting around to a few different parks in Tokyo.
In this post I wanted to share my newest find, Gyoen Nation Garden in Tokyo. Gyoen is just a few minutes by foot from Shinjuku Station’s east exits. Unlike all of the other parks I’ve been to there is a small fee of 200yen (about $1.60USD) to enter. There are several gates around the park helpful directions and maps provided in several languages.
When I visited the park I didn’t have any particular part I wanted to see so I just started wandering around the paths. Unless you have a very specific part of the park you’d like to see, I would suggest the same approach. There’s really no wrong way to go around the park.
