A fantastic park

The Yoyogi is the ideal stop after a studious morning spent visiting temples and shrines. You will feel carefree upon leaving this park, which has a festive atmosphere and which is located in Shinjuku.

Every Sunday, the talents of the capital meet near the east entrance. Japanese Elvises and horn players reinterpret the classics of the 1950s while hip-hop dancers and gangs of rockabillies engage in lively jam sessions to the delight of passersby.


The Northwest of Yoyogi offers a more tranquil setting. There is a bike hire, which for 100 yen will let you take a bicycle or tandem along the shaded paths of the park. You will certainly cross paths with a Scottish terrier wearing a glittery hat or a Chihuahua wearing neon butterfly wings: Yoyogi Park never lets you take yourself too seriously.
