In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
Kansenen Park is the only garden run by Shinjuku City that follows the traditional style of a stroll garden, with a central pond. It was once the residence of the Owari-Tokugawa clan, one of the most prominent and powerful families in 17th-19th century Japan.
The park has a different appeal in each season. From cherry blossoms in spring to vibrant foliage in fall, Kansenen is a beautiful oasis in the middle of the city at any time of the year.
The illuminated autumn foliage will be a beautiful sight to behold for guests who will have the rare opportunity to visit the park at night, when it is normally closed.
Come and enjoy this special chance to see the park's vibrant gold and vermillion, and gaze at the beauty of the lights reflected on the pond. It's sure to create an unforgettable impression.
Note: This event is sponsored in part by the Autumn Illuminations Model Business Grant, a program run jointly by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Tokyo Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Please check the official event website for the latest updates on opening dates and times, prices, and other information.
