Laid Back Picnic - English -

I enjoy picnics around Tokyo

【Autumn leaves】Shinjuku Gyo-en Park @SHINJUKU


It is autumn leaves information as of November 17, 2018.

As it was Saturday, it was quite crowded.

It is an impression that the number of tourists is more than before.

※ An English translation of an article published in November 2018 in a Japanese blog.



Today's autumn leaves

You can still see the autumn leaves! In my subjectivity, the fall foliage rate is around 40%.

Fallen leaves and nuts will delight your feet.

Please enjoy the Japanese garden.


Event information

The “Chrysanthemum Exhibition” is currently being held, so there are other highlights besides autumn leaves.

Chrysanthemum flowers were more beautiful than I expected.


The “Chrysanthemum Exhibition” will last until tomorrow (November 18, 2018), so it may be fun to take a walk in a picnic mood.


About congestion

There were many people sitting in front of the tea room.

Since it is a warm day on Saturday (temperature 20 degrees), there are many people in every square. It should be a little better if you move to another location.



I was lucky to get warm today, so I bought soft ice cream at the store right after I entered Shinjuku Gate!


It will be cold tomorrow, so please keep warm.


The Haramaki (Evolution of Haramaki-Laid Back Picnic) that I wrote in the previous article is useful in this season.
