Pick of the Area

Department Store Rooftop Gardens

Shinjuku is lined with department stores, many of which feature rooftop gardens—the perfect admission-free resting area. From I-Garden on the 8th floor of Isetan (Map C-1) to White Garden adjacent to the 13th floor restaurant park of Takashimaya Times Square (Map C-2), the English garden Q-Court on the 9th floor of Marui Honkan (Map C-1), and Lumine Garden 9 on the 9th floor of Lumine Est (Map B-1), Tokyo’s rooftops are wonderfully rich in lush greenery. Take your own drink and visit one or all of these fun spots on breaks between shopping.
