Yoyogi Park & Takeshita Street, Tokyo

Yoyogi Park

Yoyogi Park is one of the largest city parks, featuring wide lawns. ponds, and forested areas located in Yoyogikamizonocho, Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan. It is known for its ginko tree forest, which turns intensely golden during autumn. Other than tourist attractions, local citizens came here for a jogging, cycling, picnic and other outdoor activities.

Distance of Yoyogi Park and Takeshita Street from our airbnb homestay was not that far, making us plan for this park visit on day 1 of our Japan trip. Our homestay is near to Okubo Station and Yoyogi Park is 5 minutes walk from Harajuku Station on the JR Yamanote Line. It is located next to Meiji Shrine.

It’s a free entry park and the toilet facilities are clean. Make sure you bring a bottle of water for clean up. Here are some of the photos taken;

The street is mainly filled with independent stores and smaller brands as well as a few small department stores, meaning there is a seriously huge range to choose from. There are varieties of shops from selling :- Shirts, costumes, socks, Make up and Skin cares, and some street foods.(refer here https://tokyocheapo.com/entertainment/harajuku-takeshita-street-guide/)

We just stop for some munchies and didn’t go further in 😉
