Awesome slice of nature in the middle of the concrete jungle. The weekends can be quite crowded with expats and Japanese having picnics and playing around. Very tranquil during the week, a great place to stroll if you need a quick break from the city.
This is by far my favorite in Tokyo. There is a walking trail for those of us who like sightseeing, a large area of greens complete with fountains for those who like to tan, read, play sports, or watch others play sports, and and area that usually is home to a festival. Most weekends there is a themed festival going on complete with live music, great food and drink, and little stalls selling vario... Read More
I went to Yoyogi Park on a Sunday, and was not disappointed. Early in the afternoon, it is a beautiful place to walk around and is quite a change from the consumer oriented atmosphere right across the bridge. I was particularly amused by the 'greasers' who dress like Americans from the 1950s with leather jackets and dance around to loud music. You'll find a huge number of people there--families re...

Yoyogi is Great! Whether it is the Harajuku cosplayers on the bridge next to the park, the Meiji Shrine with its history and tranquility or the dancing rockabillies or the various festivals that happen on the shibuya side, Yoyoko really has it all. In the spring, the park becomes a giant party under the cherry blossoms, and alcohol flows to fuel a crazy week long party to mark the beginning of sp... Read More
good place to go for a walk, a very giant park. inside there is also a musuem, vending machines, a giant field. in the lakes you can see turtles, fish, and insects. during the weekday, there is barely anybody there, except for at meiji jingu shrine.
at the shrine, what's nice is that they have an english brochure and picture instructions above on how to correctly purify yourself before enterin... Read More
Yoyogi park is an amazing place! It can be relaxing and quiet sometimes and then on Sunday it can be relaxing and loud and crazy!!! All at the same time. Sunday is my personal favorite day because you can see all sorts of circles and groups practicing dance or music or playing frisbee or baseball (I've also seen people training with lightsabers, tapdancing, meditating and just hopping in a line ~~...

I specify the day of the week because I’ve been there on other days and gotten a completely different experience. But on Sundays, Yoyogi Park is bustling with Japanese and non-Japanese shucking off their business and scholarly selves and having some good old fashioned fun.
Speaking of old fashioned, check out the dancers on the walkway into the park. One group features leather jackets, loud mus... Read More
Have been returning to Yoyogi park during the weekends to unwind and be with nature since my last review (see previous review). The park never fails to surprise me with its myriad of colours in autumn and the cold shadows of winter. The yellow leaves that once crowned the trees are now carpeting the ground and are already turning brown. Along the main path you notice leaves dancing in the wind and... Read More
A nice and quiet park in Shibuya. If you want to relax and take a nice stroll in the greens this is the place to go! I walked from Shibuya station to Yoyogi Park with packed lunch from the Tokyo Food (basement). Its a nice place to sit and eat especially in front of the two large central fountains found inside the park. The only noise you may hear are the crows! Large black crows flying around and...
