4.2/5 based on 1,300+ 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.

  • Quiet park with a few traditional restaurants, which serve cheap and tasty food. Walk through to the Meiji Shrine. 
  • Yoyogi-koen is a very large park of Tokyo. To access by metro to be close, get off at station JR Harajuku (and no Yoyogi). Very popular with the tokyoites, let's go do a picnic the weekend for hanami, cosplayers, make sport. During the week it's a bit quieter but very nice for jogging or just walk in this forest to forget the noise of the city. The Park has two entrances, visible through to huge tori (Japanese portal). In the Middle, the famous Meiji-jingu temple. There are barrels of sake and wines french, quite impressive to see, as well as a small fee Park, but without much interest.

  • Within just minutes of walking it was hard to believe we were in the middle of Tokyo. Great, peaceful place to walk among the trees. 
  • Fun atmosphere. Always an event or something fun going on. People are friendly. Super clean. Clean bathrooms. Plenty of bike parking.
  • One of the biggest parks in tokyo. Can walk to your hearts content and explore. I really liked that being in jungle feel. There are museums and galleries in addition to restaurants. There are some shops selling souvenirs and traditional Japanese sweets.
  • Great park. Many unique artists come here for their presentations. Everything from magicians, musicians, sculptors, actors, dancers, and more. Also the park is awesome during the Sakura blooming. Many people come. Great for throwing a football.
  • A wonderful park with an equally wonderful atmosphere - families out with their kids, joggers running about, dance groups practising their moves and social activities being held along the jetty and general parkland. Quite a spacious park and easy to forget you are in a big city when in the middle of it. I personally loved the sounds and ambience of the park, particularly on a clear, crisp day.
  • One of the most beautiful parks I saw in Japan. Bring a blanket and go sit and hangout in the park with some friends and enjoy the beauty around you.
