Yoyogi Park


Yoyogi Park is a 133-acre park that spans Shinjuku and Shibuya. Across the street, there are two areas: a wooded area and an athletic field. It was a peaceful landscape of rice fields during the Edo period and the place where the first airplanes flew over. The area was also designated as the Athletes’ Village for the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games. The forest park area includes groves of trees, five plazas, a bicycle path, flower gardens, and a bird-watching area. There are few tall buildings around the park. So you can enjoy relaxing under the big sky, just like Central Park in NY.
