The site was the residence of the Naito family, feudal lords of the Takato domain in Shinshu. It was first opened to the public as Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden after World War II. The garden spans 58.3 hectares with a circumference of 3.5 kilometers features Western and Eastern gardens such as an English garden with spacious grass lawns, a beautiful symmetrically-designed French garden and a Japanese garden with paths around the pond. Beautiful flowers bloom all year round such as cherry blossoms and rhododendrons in spring and chrysanthemums in autumn.
