The Garden of Words - Park

The park seen in the anime movie The Garden of Words is based on Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden in real life, so I went to have a look.

It got an ashtray in real life, but other than that it matches.

This is another entrance to the park called Sendagaya Gate.

If you head out of Sendagaya Gate towards Sendagaya Station you'll see this pedestrian underpass where Chūō-Sobu Line trains run.



No map since this is a famous tourist attraction.

This location was visited on 2015/10/10.
