NEWoMan Garden | Shinjuku
NEWoMan ガーデン 新宿
Still somewhat a secret among locals, this public garden and terrace just outside and above JR Shinjuku’s New South Exit is an ideal spot for an afternoon snack or even a great place for a simple and cheap night out with friends. While most people will know this space as the location of the Suica Penguin statue, we consider this a place worth the visit if you are looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of Shinjuku.
After exploring the space in front of the JR New South Exit, take the elevator up to the 6F and discover a quiet, but expansive rooftop garden that spans over the 6th and 7th floor as well as the South and East Terrace of the NEWoMan shopping mall. The breathtaking views over Shinjuku station and the skyline of downtown Shinjuku make for a perferct stop from a shopping spree, or an impromptu picnic spot over the roofs of Tokyo.
After discovering the upper deks, make your way down the stairs on the outside of the building and you will find that this rooftop garden continues downwards across several levels until you reach the 4th floor of NEWoMan and exit.
Note: The gardens upstairs (6th floor, 7th floor, South Terrace, East Terrace) are only open from 11:00-18:00. The gardens in front of the JR New South Exit are open 24h/7
