Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is located in the heart of Tokyo and boasts a formal French garden, English landscape garden and a traditional Japanese garden. One of Japan's most prominent Western-style gardens created in the Meiji era, Shinjuku Gyoen offers types of scenery that cannot be seen in many other places in Japan.
Shinjuku Gyoen's annual Mori no Takigi Noh event is a spectacular example of both traditional Noh drama and traditional kyogen (Japanese comedy), all set within the beautiful confines of the garden's woods. The performance area is lit by burning torches, making for a truly spellbinding evening. On one Wednesday in mid-October, Shinjuku Gyoen is kept open late specifically for this event, allowing you a rare glimpse of the garden at night. Take advantage of this opportunity to see top performers in a one-of-a-kind setting!
