The Yoyogi park is located near Harajuku and Meiji Jingu shrine and it is the perfect place to go to relax after a hard shopping day or after walking and sightseeing the shrine. There are always locals enjoying their time at Yoyogi and you can usually find some Rockabilly dancers giving a show near the entrance to the park. If you forgot to buy some food to take with you to the park, there are some food vendors near the park selling snacks and drinks.
Yoyogi park is great to relax, have a picnic, exercise and depending on the season do Hanami( flower viewing ), have matsuri(traditional festival) food, see the autumn leaves fall.
Its a great place to hang with family, children and friends.
There are always interesting people dancing, playing music and some people that bring their unusual pets for a stroll!
Everyone is there on a Sunday. Just minutes away from Harajuku's Takeshita street. The Elvis guys come on Sunday, the girls doing the idol dances are there. Sometimes there are food trucks. The magician is there doings tricks with a monkey. People are all having fun.
But giant crows the look like ravens are staring at you. It's a pretty big place so easy to get lost in. No wifi. This place is fun when everyone is outside during spring and summer.
Yoyogi Park is a good choice, and probably the most visited park in Tokyo. Due to its close proximity to Meiji Shrine, Harajuku, and Shibuya, it acts as a good central location and often features events in the nearby art space.
A visit to Yoyogi Park on a Sunday morning, and you will see numerous (hundreds) of people jogging, dancing, or doing aerobics; and on a Sunday afternoon, a festival will most likely be taking place nearby.
A good park, good size, very good.
