Yoyogi park

I went to Yoyogi Park.

Yoyogi Park is one of the top 5 most popular places for Hanami , cherry blossom viewing in Tokyo.



The location of Yoyogi park was the Yoyogi Training Camp of the Imperial Japanese Army before WW2.

Yoyogi Park was used as the Yoyogi Athletes’ Village for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.

The park was later redeveloped and opened as Yoyogi Park in 1967.


Takeshita street in Harajuku

Yoyogi Park is adjacent to Harajuku Station, Yoyogi-Koen Station, Meiji-Jingumae Station, and Yoyogi-Hachiman Station.

It is also a gathering place for people from Harajuku, Omotesando, and Shibuya.

The adjacent Meiji Jingu Shrine is off-limits at night, with opening and closing hours set .

Yoyogi Park, however, is open to visitors at any time.


Inside the park, there is a cycling course, basketball court, fountain plaza, dock run, and bird sanctuary.

It’s allowing visitors to relax and get in touch with nature in the heart of the city.

Cherry blossoms

There are about 600 cherry trees in the park, and it is always crowded with people during cherry blossom season.

Usually, everyone enjoys drinking and eating, but this year, drinking and eating are prohibited due to Covid-19.

However, the cherry blossoms are still in bloom magnificently.

Why don’t you come to Yoyogi Park next year to see the cherry blossoms?

You will see Tokyo local people’s daily life with nature!

I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
