Located in Shibuya Ward, this forest park is the fifth largest urban park in Tokyo’s 23 wards and is famous as a cherry blossom spot.
In the grassy central plaza in the middle of the park, which is said to be the widest sky in central Tokyo, there are abundant facilities to enjoy the scenery and nature, including “Bird Sanctuary,” the first bird observation site created in Japan, zelkova trees, and an observation deck.
A monument marking the beginning of Japan Airlines and a dormitory commemorating the Olympic Games are also located here, making a stroll through the park while experiencing the history of the area highly recommended.
The Yoyogi Park cycling course is maintained on the north side of the park, and visitors who come empty-handed can rent bicycles and enjoy cycling.
There is also an outdoor stage and event plaza where various events are frequently held, as well as a dog run facility, an athletic field with a soccer field, a futsal field.
For the hoopers, the Yoyogi park outdoor basketball courts are the top streetball courts in Tokyo.
In the surrounding area, there are many spots where you can enjoy nature and the city in the heart of the city, including Meiji Jingu Shrine, Shibuya, and Harajuku.
