    Shinjuku Gyoen

    September 26, 2017 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    In Shinjuku haben wir den nächsten Park in Tokyo erkundet. Man muss zwar 200 ¥ Eintritt bezahlen, dafür ist er sehr schön ruhig und top gepflegt. Eis hat man auch an fast jeder Ecke bekommen :D Hier werden wir definitiv noch einmal hingehen!Read more

    Nein, das ist wirklich typisch japanisch. 😅 Jeder hat sich was mitgebracht, du siehst hier viele mit kleinen Tüten von einem Einkaufsladen oder selbst gemachte Sandwiches 🥪 in eigenen Schatullen.

    Shinjuku Go-yen

    January 4, 2017 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    We had a great visit to this park and walked around the beautiful area. This was the site of the famous toilet incident as well as the place of one of my favourite photos of my gorgeous wife.
    The shōgun bequeathed this land to Lord Naitō (daimyō) of Tsuruga in the Edo period who completed a garden here in 1772. After the Meiji Restoration the house and its grounds were converted into an experimental agricultural centre. It then became a botanical garden before becoming an imperial garden in 1879. The current configuration of the garden was completed in 1906. Most of the garden was destroyed by air raids in 1945, during the later stages of World War II. The garden was rebuilt after the war.

    The jurisdiction over the Imperial Palace Outer Garden and the Kyoto imperial garden was transferred to the Ministry of Health and Welfare (now the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare) in 1947.

    On May 21, 1949, the garden became open to the public as a national park. It came under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of the Environment in January 2001, with the official English name "Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden". The official Japanese name remains Shinjuku Gyoen, where gyoen means "imperial garden".

    In 1989, the Shinjuku Gyoen was the site chosen for the funeral rites of Emperor Shōwa before he was buried at the Musashi Imperial Graveyard.
