Yoyogi Park, Shibuya

4.2
#3 of 386 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.

  • I use this park as my favorite running course, especially for early morning and late night to avoid congestion...  more »
  • There are lots of trees and benches. A few ducks in the man-made pond and some noisy Ravens make up the fauna. The flowers were a no-show when I visited. Overall it was calming but nothing spectacular...  more »
  • This is a vast park in the middle of Tokyo which somehow manages to feel like it's in the middle of a jungle, shaded by the foliage of many mature trees. Very calm, even though it is very popular with...  more »

  • Beautiful park in the middle of Tokyo. Massive area for a good run. Clean, wide, fun, and with water fountain for when you get thirsty. Was there during tokyo marathon, so manage to get a some warm up mileage there. There's also a dog park for when you get bored from all the running. It's only about a 2k loop so, you'll get bored after a few rounds of that. Nevertheless, it's one of those parks that one must go run when you're in Tokyo. Simply awesome.
  • Excellent area when visiting Japan. It has not only the traditional feel of Japan due to the Meji shrine being right next door, but also a contemporary atmosphere. The park itself is very large and has many gorgeous views. It could take up an entire day when visiting if you look at all of the areas it has to offer.
  • You really get to see people from all different walks of life here, plus there are tons of cute doggos around! Great for people watching! Main entrance was a bit difficult to find though, much friends accidentally walked all the way from the shrine to the back entrance of the park. Hahaha
  • We went here twice. Once in the early morning, which was nice as it was very empty and beautiful. The second time was in the late afternoon and it was kind of a madhouse. Very fun for people watching!
  • The south area is good to hang out at, though not much grass, so bring your own picnic blanket. The north is very wooded, with Meiji Shrine in the middle. Perfect on hot humid days, where the shade and some breeze feel great
