Autumn view of Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden @ Tokyo, Japan

Shinjuku Gyoen is a large park near Shinjuku and Shibuya. The site was the residence of the Naito family, feudal lords of the Takato domain in Shinshu. The name was changed to Shinjuku Imperial Botanical Garden in May 1879, and then to Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden after World War II, when it was opened to the public. The park spans an area of 58.3ha and has a circumference of 3.5km, and is scattered with diverse garden styles like neat and orderly French formal, vast English landscape, and traditional Japanese, where visitors stroll a path and enjoy ponds and streams from various angles. Beautiful flowers bloom year round such as cherry blossoms and rhododendrons from January to May, and chrysanthemums in November. This time I am going to view the scenery of autumn in the park.

There is entrance fee of 200 Yen for adult to enter the park. It worth to pay as I think this is among the best park and most beautiful in the world. You will need to spend at least half day here to explore the park.

My morning routine in Tokyo. Catch the subway to my favourite place.

Somehow the tall building looks very familiar. It is NTT Docomo Yoyogi Building.

Wow, so pro. Almost all carry Canon white lens.
