Yoyogi Park, Shibuya

4.2
#3 of 422 in Parks in Tokyo
Enjoy strolling and relaxing surrounded by trees at Yoyogi Park, one of the capital's largest green spaces. A big patch of vegetation surrounded by urban sprawl, the park boasts many fountains, ponds, and well-manicured lawns. You'll find that the park features fewer cherry trees than you might expect, instead including a huge swathe of gingko trees. Afterwards, you can kick back on a park bench or on the grass and amuse yourself with the many street performers and musicians that frequent the area.

  • The hotel was very nice and the breakfast was very nice. The area is also a bicycle driving range for toddlers and is good for cycling. There was also a tandem two-seater bicycle so friends could enjoy it.

  • Walking distance from Shibuya Station and Harajuku station. The weekend is always crowded in a large park. The difficulty is that there are many crows. There is also a drum that produces even louder sounds. By the way, the drum is not permitted, and it is careful when saying to the park office.

  • A place that despite being full of tourists, is quiet. Ideal for taking a walk and making beautiful pictures. It is located near the JR Harajuku station and the Meiji Sanctuary, one of the most famous sanctuaries in Tokyo. We were fortunate enough to arrive with the cherry blossom, so if you are lucky this park is also ideal to see cherry blossoms.

  • Beautiful park that is totally dog friendly. Many people came to have picnics with their family and walking their dogs. Wasn't too packed on a Sunday morning but it was lovely to stroll around the park looking at trees and enjoying the surroundings. We came during winter season so there's not many flowers to admire but nevertheless it was a gorgeous experience
  • One of the more interesting spots in Tokyo to people watch. It was pretty empty when we went recently but it was pretty cool that day. Nice park to hang out in even if there aren't a ton of people there.
  • Amazing Green Space In a massive metro area, it was nice to be able to find a place that had green everywhere you looked. It was fairly uncrowned when I went and a great place to wander or read - nothing short for a site notable for once serving the Olympic Village. There were also attractions nearby which made it a good place to include on a walking tour of Shibuya, perfect spot for picnics, route for jogging and space for other outdoor activities.
  • This is a wonderful park in Tokyo mainly because of its mature trees, beautiful entrance monument, and wonderfully calm walking trails throughout. The Meiji Jingu shrine is located in the middle of the park and it is a wonderful walk to get there. This park is very accessible from the local train and subway stations nearby in Harajuku. Enjoy a stroll through the tall trees to take a break from the tall towers of the city.
  • Beautiful park this time of the year! Worthwhile the visit, especially with the Meiji shrine just beside it. Unfortunately parts of the Meiji Shrine is under renovation now so the experience is not perfect, but still lovely :)
