Yoyogi Park is one of the largest Tokyo’s parks that is perfect for sport activities, picnicking, spending time with friends and family or simply enjoying the nature. Although, the Hanami season doesn’t settle in here as much as in other parks, together with wide lawns and a trespassing river they make an ideal destination to runaway from city’s noise.
The park features plenty points of interests including separated Imperial Gardens, where you can admire irises, azaleas, a traditional tea house and a pond full of koi carps surrounded by benches where you can catch a breath.
There is also the most famous and constantly besieged Shinto shrine called Meiji, where people come to pray and find inner peace. Japanese Emperor visits the shrine using his adjoined and private Harajuku metro station that lands him directly within the premises.
For those looking forward to a simple walk around and inhaling fresh air, the paths are endless and can be enjoyed with any stamina level.
