Yoyogi Park, Shibuya

(4.2/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Those who love nature, city and architecture, the Yoyogi Park is the ideal place. We can appreciate shintoístas temples, various trees and listen to the music of Japanese singers.

  • It is daunting to meet this old park in the heart of a metropolis such as Tokyo, where the price of land is astronomical. However the Park is maintained and its afforestation will be and it is a pleasure to trails under huge trees.

  • A very quiet and relaxing green area in the heart of the city, with beautiful gates of I and wide boulevards. Beautiful displays of casks of sake. Very busy by the locals who come to try some relaxation or visit the Meiji Shrine.

  • An astonishing park from every point of view. Quiet, guarded from the busy streets of Tokyo with families playing and eating with their kids or friends. Beautiful views in the park it self with two fountains and a small pond, on the other side you see the wast Tokyo skyline stretching itself over the tree tops. Very much recommended if you need a break from the "normal" Tokyo. Also, I enjoyed eating breakfast/ lunch there. Buy it in advance at the metro and eat it here.
  • One of the best maintained and beautifully manicured parks I have had the pleasure of visiting. Take the trails and get lost. You will not regret it. Unless you want to get out, not a lot of exits. Keep that in mind.
  • The place everyone goes on a Sunday - from Harajuku Station, follow the crowd up the hill and see the rock'n'roll dancers at the entrance - then stroll into the park and linger listening to the buskers - check across the bridge to the left - there's usually some festival stalls on weekends - African, Indonesian, natto, beer? - enjoy! Oh yeah - right at the park entrance is the path to Meiji Jingu shinto temple where you'll see Shinto wedding processions and/or 6yo kids in kimonos for coming of age.
  • A nice place for seeing Sakuras in bloom and bring your own lunch and make a picnic. Just be prepared that there'll be lots of people inside the park and you may have trouble finding a place to sit
  • I love yoyogi park. It's one of the peaceful places to go to when Tokyo gets to be too much. It should be noted however that it can be as or more busy as any place in Tokyo. If you want to do something social come on a Sunday. It's packed with all kinds of people, dancing, doing circus tricks, and just hanging out. If you want to get away from it all, go on a weekday and head towards the part of the park furthest from harajuku.
