The Basics

Yoyogi Park was created for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics and turned into a park afterwards. Peruse the 133-acre (54-hectare) park that boasts walking paths, varied greenery, and water features. Yoyogi Park is within walking distance of hip Harajuku district, the tree-lined avenue of Omotesando, and more traditional Meiji Jingu Park and Meiji Shrine, making it easy to add to a larger sightseeing itinerary of this area of Tokyo.

Great Experience! Highly Recommend!
1. Bikes were very good and working order. Mine had disc brakes and was a comfortable ride. 2. Gaku was a such a great guy and an excellent tour guide. 3. Instructions were clear and great. You will have a wonderful time with Gaku. We got to see Mt. Fuji from the lookout. It was a very special moment that I won't forget.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • A flea market is occasionally held at the park on Sundays, but its irregularity makes it hard to plan for.

When to Get There

Yoyogi Park is always open. Go on Sundays to see performers hanging out at the park, including a group dressed as 1950s rockers, dancing to jukebox music just outside the park. In fall, the park's many gingko trees attract crowds flocking to see their flaming orange color.

Visit Meiji Jingu Park

Meiji Shrine is Tokyo’s most important Shinto shrine, and it's close to Yoyogi Park. Consider visiting the two parks on the same day to experience multiple sides of Tokyo. While Yoyogi Park puts on displays of youth culture, Meiji Jingu shows off the more traditional side of Japan. You may even see a traditional Shinto wedding being held at the shrine.
