Yoyogi Park

Yoyogi Park, Tokyo 2017

Yoyogi Park is a park in the Shibuya district of Tokyo. It is one of Tokyo’s largest city parks with wide lawns, ponds, and forest areas. It’s a great place for jogging, picnicking and other outdoor activities. Although Yoyogi Park has relatively few cherry trees compared to other locations in Tokyo, it is still a beautiful vantage point for cherry blossoms in spring. He is also known for its ginkgo forest, which turns intensely golden in the fall.

Before becoming a city park in 1967, the area served as the venue of the Olympic Village for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics and before that as a residential area for US military personnel. Today, the park is a popular meeting place for music and dance troupes.

The center of the park is the famous Meiji Jingu Shrine. The park can be considered as the ‘Central Park’ of Tokyo due to its size. A green oasis in the middle of the concrete city.
