Yoyogi Park

Yoyogi Park (代々木公園, Yoyogi Kōen) is a park in Shibuya and one of the largest parks in Tokyo (Japan). It’s a perfect place for outdoor activities, picnics, jogging or simply a relaxing walk

Located right next to Meiji Shrine, worth to visit this park after visiting Meiji Shrine, since the sightseeing of this park will take a while. You may click here for a brief guide of Meiji Shrine

Yoyogi Park 代々木公園 es uno de los parques más grandes de Tokio localizado en el distrito de Shibuya. Es un lugar idóneo para realizar cualquier tipo de actividad, desde correr hasta picnics o simplemente dar un paseo

Está situado justo al lado del Santuario Meiji, por lo que vale la pena perder 1 hora en ver el parque. Si vas a visitar el Santuario Meiji (Meiji Shrine), puedes hacer clic aquí para una guía breve

HOW TO GET THERE

Whether you have visited Meiji Shrine, just continue walking through the park and you will spot the entrance right next to the Meiji Shrine entry

Si has visitado Meiji Shrine, simplemente continua caminando por el parque hasta localizar la entrada del Yoyogi Park justo al lado de la entrada principal del Meiji Shrine

As personal suggestion, no worth to go there exclusively to visit the park unless you have more plans within the area. Tokyo awaits to be explored with more exciting places than a park!

Como sugerencia, no vale la pena venir exclusivamente a ver el parque. Es merecedor de ver, pero solamente es un parque y Tokio esconde mejores lugares para visitar

EXPLORING AROUND

During my visit, there were a food market near the entrance crossing the street and I had the chance to try some traditional food and snacks. However, it’s a bit touristy-focused and I bet you may find better places out of this park.

Durante mi visita, tuve la suerte de encontrar un mercadillo con comida “tradicional”. Este mercadillo estaba justo cruzando la calle al lado del parque. Sin embargo, lo ví algo más tirando al turista que exclusivamente tradicional.

Continuing walking and crossing back the street, you may spot the park. Total freedom for a walk

Para volver al parque después del mercadillo, simplemente cruzar la calle de nuevo. Como ya mencioné, no tiene nada de novedoso salvo su vegetación y si buscas un poco de tranquilidad
