Shinjuku Gyoen is also nice to visit during autumn when the leaves change. There are a lot of different types of trees that change colors around the park, however the maple trees are particularly beautiful and can be seen in large numbers around the Japanese garden. The colors typically appear from mid November to mid December. Lets have a view of what I have snapped using my camera during my visit back in early April 2014.
Long queue to enter the park and it is the main attraction during spring in Tokyo.
Got my ticket. 200 Yen per entry.
At the entrance greeted by this first cherry blossom.
From near, the flower is really beautiful. No wonder people come from all over the world to view the cherry blossom in Japan.
Wow, the whole tree is all flowers.
Shibazakura is a type of lawn cherry blossom which grow low on the ground. It does not belongs to cherry blossom tree and its usually purple in colour.
Simply beautiful colours.
Couples having their private time.
The Japanese like to have hanami party or having picnic under the sakura trees.
Children especially like the event the most.

This pine trees is beautiful during autumn. However, it has no leaf during spring.
