Neighborhood: Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.

    Large urban park
    This vast, lush area is the green lung of Harajuku, a lively shopping paradise in Tokyo. Yoyogi Park is serene, peaceful and free of tourist crowds. While still in the city, visitors can enjoy a bit of countryside..

    Peaceful Park & Wonderful Shrine
    I love visiting the Shrine in Yoyogi Park on a Sunday. There is usually a wedding taking place, and also many families visiting wearing their traditional Japanese kimono's. It's like a peaceful oasis in the middle of a vety busy city.

    Fall Colors in Yoyogi Park
    Came here for the fall colors on Dec 04, 2023. This park is just next to Meiji Shrine Inner Garden. Golden gingko painted the garden in cheerful tone. A very relaxing walk to start the day right. Please check out the pictures.

While Tokyo is first and foremost known for its well organized urban life, can it still boast of beautiful green spaces in the inner city. Yoyogi Park is one such example that offers a lush slice of piece and quiet, when the city life seems to have gotten the better of you. People playing chess, walking their dogs or hugging trees can be observed and admired here! Great adittion to the surrounding and one of the reasons Shibuya is such a liveable area in total!

It took us about 3 hours to see the whole park! And it was so worth it. Yoyogi park is behind Meiji Jingu Shrine and one train station away from Harajuku, so it was very easy to make it part of our itinerary. It was the perfect place for a picnic and lots of pictures.

This park is at Harajuku and is less than a 2 minute walk from the station. We came here as heard that it was one of the places that had early blooms of the Cherry Blossoms.
We were not disappointed as the blossoms were in the park bit of a walk from the entrance. You could see where the Cherry Blossoms were as there were quite a few people standing around in one particular area. We were glad to see them as it was our last day and an unexpected surprise visit.
You could see locals walking their dogs or even taking their daily exercise. We stayed here a while to soak up the atmosphere.

Seeing it from high above from the Shibuya Scramble Square Building I decided to check out the winter illumination in (part of) Yoyogi Park.
It appeared to be very popular since it was immensely crowded. Actually it is just one straight walk from the south beginning of the park (at the end of Koen Dori) passing the Yoyogi 2nd Gymnasium until you reach the road towards Harajuku station. The total length of this walk is almost 400 meters. You will walk through a lane of bright blue lights. About half way down you can let three cloches ring apparently to wish yourself merry X-mas and a happy New Year.
The walk is very pleasant and actually quite eerie with that sea of blue lights surrounding you. But it was big fun.

Beautiful park with very nice areas - it is almost surreal to walk around in a large park in busy Tokyo and all you can hear are birds singing. Theres also a shrine and tempel area of the park, worth a visit.

We walked through the park on our way from the Shinjuku area to Shibya. A nice walk I can highly reccomend.

Again, found by accident as we went 'walk-about' following our noses and avoiding, or should that be evading, the crowds.

A huge Park, lots of families playing games, having picnics in the sunshine, taking a stroll or walking the dog.

Fresh air everywhere.

If you want nor need a break - Commended.

Great place to unwind. You can spend many afternoons exploring the park. It is nearby NHK Hall and main Shibuya. Lots of walking to be done, but there are nice spots to sit and relax on.
