By Takane Shoji    - 1 min read

From the French, formal style to the traditional, Japanese-style garden, the walk around Shinjuku Gyoen has many worthwhile stops. While each season breathes life into different blossoming flowers, visitors can appreciate an even greater diversity of botanic life all year long at the newly opened greenhouse. Especially for photographers looking to capture a frame-worthy macro shot, the flowers inside the park will be a marvelous canvas. Even for those without cameras, the meticulously maintained gardens sprinkled with beautiful flowers will invite you to a true oasis in one of the busiest districts of Tokyo. ​
