- BUSINESS SUMMERY
Purpose of establishment
Beloved by the Japanese and welcoming to people from all over the world, the Kokyo Gaien National Garden, the Kyoto Gyoen National Garden, and the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden are operated with the honor of being gardens that belong to the Japanese Royal family. Their elegance and long history behind them attracts a great many visitors. In terms of maintenance and preservation, each park comes under a branch of the Ministry of the Environment, who works with private societies for the presevation of the Kokyo Gaien National Garden, the Kyoto Gyoen National Garden, and the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.
While cities around the parks have been significantly urbanized, we maintain the beauty of nature as a oasis in the city. To upgrade our service, we will work closer and efficiently with the three private societies that are the National Gardens Association. The National Gardens Association’s aim is to maintain, preserve and improve the three gardens under the instruction of the government.
