Shinjyuku Gyoen National Garden, Ministry of the Environment

Shinjuku Gyoen was constructed on the site of a private mansion belonging to Lord Naito, a "daimyo"(feudal lord) of the Edo era. Completed in 1906 as an imperial garden, it was re-designated as a national garden after the Second World War and opened to the public. With 58.3 ha(144 acres) in size and a circumference of 3.5 km, it blends three distinct styles, French Formal Garden, English Landscape Garden and Japanese Traditional Garden, and is considered to be one of the most important gardens from the Meiji era.

Information

Notice for Visitors

October 16, Thursday, 2014

Regarding the countermeasures for Dengue fever, Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden has been temporally closed from September 7th (Sunday).

Because of effectiveness of the countermeasures, such as spraying insecticides and control for larvae, the number of captured mosquitoes in the garden has been largely decreased. In addition, the Dengue viruses have not been detected from the captured mosquitoes. Due to these reasons, we would like to announce that the whole Shinjuku Gyoen will reopen as of October 17th (Friday).

Thank you very much for your patience.

*Notes:
The following facilities located outside of Shinjuku Gyoen already reopened from October 9th (Thursday):

  • Information Center (including Art Gallery)
  • Promenade (north side of Shinjuku Gyoen)
