Shinjuku Gyoen park is the perfect place to view the cherry blossoms. The first time we tried to go, it was closed. We only had an hour the second time we went. And this was taken on the third attempt. But somehow we’d still get lost whenever we tried to go. I’d put it into our GPS and Shinjuku Gyoen sounded like Shinjuku”jail”. I was startled me every time I heard it.
