Day Trip with Chantal – Secret Rooftop Garden in Marui Building, Shinjuku!

Last weekend after we filmed the Top 10 Tips for how to get a seat on the train while pregnant“, Chantal took me to Shinjuku and showed me her favourite spot for lunch.

It is a secret rooftop garden on top of the Marui Building!

Main Marui Building, Shinjuku:

  • Address: 3-30-13 Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo
  • Rooftop Garden Opening Times: 11am-8pm

Chantal’s Tips:

  • Step 1 – Buy lunch at the French bakery Le Petit Mec (The Little Guy) on the 1st Floor of Marui Building. The baguettes and cinnamon rolls are to die for!
  • Step 2 – Catch the elevator to the Rooftop, stopping on the way at the nursing room on the 6th Floor or the glamorous bathrooms on every floor with trees inside. Once you reach the Rooftop floor, you can either walk up the stairs to the Rooftop Garden, or if you have a pram you can access the garden via the staff elevator. There is a sign on the wall for how to get there – go to the Be Room counter and ask staff to guide you.
  • Step 3 – Enjoy lunch in the stunning Rooftop Garden! We sat in these huge long sofa-style coaches by the fountain. They were so deep we could cosy-up in there with our legs crossed. (Apparently the garden is popular with couples for romantic dates!)
  • Step 4 – Catch elevator back down. Again, follow Chantal’s instructions on the video for how to call the staff to use the elevator if you have a pram.
  • Step 5 – Finish up with a divine Italian gelato at GROM on 1st Floor.



  • 住所: 東京都新宿区新宿3-30-13
  • 屋上庭園開園時間: 11am-8pm


  • ステップ1 – まず、ランチを購入します。マルイの1階にあるフランスのベーカリー’Le Petit Mec‘ (The Little Guy)がオススメです。特に、バゲットとシナモンロールはものすごーくオススメだとか。
  • ステップ2 – エレベーターにのって屋上まで行きますが、途中、6階にある授乳室か、各階にあるトイレによります。屋上まできたら、屋上庭園まで階段でいくか、あるいは、ベビーカーの場合、表示にしたがって従業員用エレベーターで向かいます。わからなければBeルームカウンタで聞いてください。
  • ステップ3 – 屋上庭園でランチを楽しんで!私たちは、ソファタイプの長いベンチにすわりました。とても深いので、足を組んでいても全員で座れました。(ちなみに、この屋上庭園は人気のあるデートスポットでもあるそうです!)
  • ステップ4 – エレベーターにのって帰ります。ベビーカーの場合、ビデオの中のChantalの通りにスタッフを呼んでください。
  • ステップ5 – 最後はイタリアンジェラートで〆ます。1階にあるGROM がオススメです。
