Shinjuku Garden

I recommend that you visit Shinjuku Garden not once but every season of the year. In Spring, you will get to see the magnificent scenery of the cherry blossoms.  And in Fall, you can enjoy the melancholy of the autumn leaf colours.  A delightful experience is guaranteed every time you visit the garden.  Admission is 200 yen.  There is also a traditional tea house in the garden that will provide it’s visitors with an unforgettable and peaceful time.  The tea house was originally built in 1906 but was burned down during the second World War in 1945.  Thereafter in 1987 it was rebuilt to how it stands today. Ladies dressed in kimonos will serve you a cup of matcha green tea and wagashi, a traditional Japanese confectionary.  You can purchase a ticket from the vending machine outside of the tea house for 700 yen.
