||Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is one of the largest gardens in Tokyo. It was constructed on the site of a private mansion belonging to Lord Naito, a "daimyo"(feudal lord) of the Edo era. It was originally an imperial garden but re-designated to be a national garden after the Second World War.
Around half of Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is like a park where many people enjoy picnic. In addition to the Japanese traditional gardens, there are a English landscape garden and a French formal garden. Usually, it takes two or three hours to walk around the entire garden.
