Shinjuku-gyoemmae Station lies on the Marunouchi Line in Shinjuku Ward of Tokyo. It is located two stations to the east of Shinjuku Station, the busiest train station in the world.

Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden

Only a 5 minute walk from Shinjuku-gyoemmae Station is Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, one of Tokyo's largest parks and one of the most popular places for viewing cherry blossoms in spring.

Now under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of the Environment, Shinjuku Gyoen was originally a residence of the Naito family in the Edo period. It later came under the management of the Imperial Household Agency of Japan before coming under the Ministry's jurisdiction and opening to the public in 1949.

A meandering idyll of peace and quiet, Shinjuku Gyoen is a beautiful blend of three distinct styles - French Formal, English Landscape and Japanese traditional. The large gardens cover an area of 58.3 hectares with a circumference of 3.5 km, and have over 20,000 trees. There are over 1,700 tropical and subtropical plant species in the greenhouse. A traditional Japanese tea house can also be found within the gardens.
