Walk around and join the fun in Yoyogi park

Located in the northern part of Shibuya. Next to the Meiji shrine and Harajuku fashion district, the Yoyogi park is one of the largest public parks in Tokyo. During my life in Tokyo I’ve visited many times Yoyogi park. Birthday picnics, music and other events, as for cherry blossom season. A wonderful place to escape without leaving the city with some friends, relax and join the fun in the park.
