The gardens reminiscent of the Musashino region of old provide
a place to enjoy the beauty of trees, grasses and flowers in all
seasons. Once a nursery to raise the trees that line Tokyo
streets, this area was opened as the Jindai Green Zone after
the war. It became Jindai Botanical Gardens in 1961, opening
as Tokyo’s only botanical garden.
Today about 100,000 trees and brushes of 4,800 species are
planted in the gardens. The gardens are divided into 30 blocks
by plant species, including the rose garden, azalea garden,
plum garden, and bush clover gardens. That way, you can learn
about the plants as you enjoy the scenery. The gardens play a
role in raising citizens’ interest in greenery by preserving
varieties of Edo garden plants and holding events on plants and
gardening. A large greenhouse was completed in 1984 to hold
unusual tropical plants, allowing visitors to view colorful
flowers even in the middle of winter.
The gardens celebrated their 40th anniversary in October
2001. To commemorate that, the Autumn Rose Festa was held
with garden hours extended, the rose garden lit up at night,
concerts held, a café terrace operated, and other attractions.
Since then, the Spring Rose Festa has been held every May
and the Autumn Rose Festa every October.
During the cherry blossom season, the park is open at night
and a concert with illuminations is held in the Sakura garden.
Other projects are held to promote learning and knowledge
of plants. Outside specialists hold lectures, and the garden
staff holds hands-on workshops.
Volunteer guides who explain about the plants got their start
in April 2002. Today, they number around 60 active members.
For about ten days in a typical month and when events are
held, they guide visitors to highlights of the gardens and give
guided tours of the rose garden.
