Yoyogi Park, adjacent to Meiji Jingu Shrine and Yoyogi National Gymnasium, is famous for its vast area. Located in the Shibuya-Harajuku area, the park is filled with people coming in from the busy neighborhoods to feel the nature. With a basketball court and a cycling course, the park is especially popular among young people. There is a street that separates the forest park and the open space, which is sometimes used as the venue of free events and concerts. As the park is open 24 hours, it’s great for a walk early in the morning or a late night stroll.

If you are going to Yoyogi Park, spring is definitely the best season. From late March to early April, you will be able to enjoy the cherry blossoms in full bloom. The yamazakura and someiyoshino cherry flowers are magnificent in this time of the year. Although there are no restaurants or cafés in the park, there will be food stands during this hanami season. You will be able enjoy casual and reasonable eats, referred to as “B-grade gourmet” in Japanese.


Fun events on weekends

Many fun events are held during the weekends. One of the popular ones is the weekend flea market. The location attracts many fashionable people and thus, fashionable clothes/goods. If shopping is your thing, make sure to take a look on your visit!


A walk around the fountain square

The fountain square of Yoyogi Park is like an urban oasis. You can just lie on the grass and watch people playing instruments, dancing or practicing for other performances. The fountain lights up at night.


Relax in the broad nature

While Tokyo also has other relatively big parks, none of them are quite as impressive as Yoyogi Park. Within the park, there is even the first bird sanctuary to ever have been created in Japan. If you ever get tired or overwhelmed in the busy city, Yoyogi Park is your go-to place!
