Jindai Botanical Gardens

Overview

Jindai Botanical Gardens are Tokyo Metropolitan botanical gardens located in Chofu city and it is the leading botanical garden in Japan.
In the gardens, set in a style reminiscent of old Musashino, around 100,000 trees of 4,800 kinds are planted.
The garden is divided into 30 areas, including a rose garden, an azalea garden, a plum garden and a lespedeza garden.
Visitors can enjoy seeing beautiful flowers and plants throughout all four seasons.
In addition, we hold events and exhibitions in relation to the preservation of the Edo period cultivars, plants and horticulture to convey the charm of these plants to many people.

Highlights

Approximately 12,000 trees in 290 cultivars of azaleas and “satsuki” are planted from the main gate to around the circumference of the pond, and this azalea garden is one of the main symbols of the Jindai Botanical Garden.
In spring, cherry blossoms from about 750 trees bloom, including unique species other than “somei yoshino”, such as “satozakura” and a species unique to this garden called “Jindai akebono”, making it one of the most popular cherry-blossom spots in Tokyo.
In the large greenhouse renewed and reopened in May 2016, you can enjoy seeing rare tropical plants throughout the year.
If you walk through the Jindai-ji gate on the opposite side of the main gate, you can enjoy walking the areas that have historic temples, and also enjoy eating the famous Jindai-ji soba.
