Shinjuku Gyoen Tokyo on a Rainy Day

A favorite garden among locals and visitors

By Elena Lisina    - 1 min read

It’s one of my most favorite places to visit in Tokyo. On a sunny day during hanami season, Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden may be the best time to visit, but the local citizens typically enjoy the outdoors in any type of weather and any season.

On a rainy day, Shinjuku Gyoen is very beautiful, too. Contrasts and colors are brighter, and you will see just few people who enjoy a quiet rainy day in a garden, like me!

I love Japan very much! I like small towns of Japan where I can watch people doing their business and talk to them carefully. They're always friendly. I like Japanese gardens where I can just sit or walk and take my time. Also I like Shinto Jinja as being there I feel in peace. I like to watch sunsets and then to dine in some small local places. I like to soak into onsen after a long day of wandering. I like Japanese crafts very much as all items are made with great taste and skill. Nihon wo daisuki desuyo!
