Shinjuku Gyoen ( 新宿御苑)

The heart of the Shinjuku skyscraper district in Tokyo, where the Lost in Translation hotel is located, is green and huge. This 3.5 km circle comprises a lake, a teahouse, Japanese, French and English gardens, some ducks and many cherry trees. Aside from a popular spring spot, where it is traditional to watch the cherry tree blossom (hanami), it is a great place to spend a relaxing day under the sun, specially in winter, when parks are rather calm.

200 JPY entry, to grant you an almost immediate stress relief. If you come around, do not miss it. Probably the real Tokyo side, where locals go to breath out of the daily life pace.

Cuando la gente piensa en Tokyo, les viene más a la cabeza el rascacielos de Lost In Translation que las maravillosas flores del cerezo. Al igual que New York cuenta con Central Park, Tokyo anda plagado de verdes pulmones donde los locales se suelen relajar. Hoy paseamos por Shinjuku Gyoen.

Here's a map and a link to GMAP
