Japan | Tokyo | Shinjuku Gyoen

It was the day after our dance competition, woke up for breakfast and headed out quite early because we had a limited time to look around Japan together since Ariel and our caretaker, Ashley was flying back to Malaysia that evening. Sightseeing is a must for traveling! So Ashley brought us to Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. Where we spent hours there just running around and take photos! ...I took almost 300 photos here! hahaha.. So enjoy my photo spam~

On one of the streets heading to our destination. Personally love this shot very much because i think my wavy-ombre hair looks nice~ heheh

Path to Shinjuku Gyoen.


You'll need to pay for entrance fee. I can't remember the amount but it is not expensive and definitely worth it. :)

It was just the end of winter so the grass wad still dead lol. But it was still very pretty! 

Adventure timeeee

We love Japan 

Sorry for the much face covering pictures, my face was frozen.

Plum blossoms that we thought was sakuras but not.

Just having fun running around lol

Anywhere is a good stop for a picture even it's with a random tree trunk LOL.. Ariel, you look short here hahaha

Another random tree trunk.

And finally sakuras!! ♥ 

Group picture with the gang. 

More beautiful dead grass field ♥ 

Fav spot of the day, beautiful sakura corner spotted by Ariel! 

We got so excited just looking at flowers and taking pictures with them in this little corner. Imagine when it's April and the whole Shinjuku Gyoen is covered with sakuras! 

♥ ♥ 

Wanted to just lay on the ground and selfie x934382356827. Zach stopped me tho. :(

Yup, a picture with the ground is nice too. :3

Much lovee 

After spending much time with sakuras, we explored the garden a little bit more.

Went to the building in the picture above.

sight from the building. 

Can i live in a place like this please?

Construction building ruining my picture.

We only walked a small part of the garden, it was just too big for our limited time. We went for another stop before Ariel & Ashley had to leave for the airport which is Harajuku! Saw pictures of some other parts of the garden with very pretty sights that we didn't get to explore, so i would definitely come back again when i have the chance!

Shinjuku Gyoen is so pretty even at this end of winter season. It is clean and very well-maintained! Just imagine in April when spring came and the park is covered with sakuras and green grass field. It would be just amazing to look at! Best time to come to Japan for sightseeing! :)

A day is always a good day when you took a lot of nice pictures! Just too bad i didn't get to bring my DSLR along. I would have gotten more! lol.. Watch my short Shinjuku Gyoen video on Insta! :) #harukotravels
