[Chrysanthemum Exhibition]Nov 1 - Nov 15 11 Naitomachi Shinjuku-ku

The Chrysanthemum beds at Shinjuku Gyoen is a series of flower beds arranged under the hut called Uwaya set up along walking path, and features flowers in a variety of distinctive colors set up in unique decorative patterns in the garden. Chrysanthemums are said to have first arrived in Japan sometime between the end of Nara Period (710-794) and the start of the Heian Period (794-1192). Afterward, Japanese cultivars were further developed in the Muromachi Period (1338-1573) and Edo Period (1603-1867), and in 1878, the Imperial Household Ministry, organized the first chrysanthemum exhibition in Akasaka Palace. Although the chrysanthemums on display were originally cultivated in the Akasaka Palace, chrysanthemums began to be cultivated at Shinjuku Gyoen as well starting in 1904. This chrysanthemum viewing event has been conducted at Shinjuku Gyoen since 1929.
