The Yoyogi park is the liveliest in Tokyo, and not counting the Imperial Gardens, it is the biggest too as its shown in Yoyogi Park map. Yoyogi park is the perfect place to see Japanese life beyond the shopping centres. Wandering through the park, especially on a Sunday, you will see families, couples and groups eating, playing baseball, walking the dog or even dancing.
The Yoyogi park is where Tokyo rockabillies meet to dance and entrance the hundreds of visitors who carefully observe their every movement. Think leather jackets, worn boots, and sky-high quiffs, the style that defines this urban tribe as its mentioned in Yoyogi Park map. The rockabillies can normally be found on Sundays at the Yoyogi Park entrance closest to the Jingu-bashi bridge (next to the JR Harajuku station). This is not to be confused with the entrance which takes you to the Meiji sanctuary.
Yoyogi Park (代々木公園, Yoyogi Kōen) is one of Tokyo largest city parks, featuring wide lawns, ponds and forested areas as you can see in Yoyogi Park map. Yoyogi Park is a great place for jogging, picnicking and other outdoor activities. Although Yoyogi Park has relatively few cherry trees compared to other sites in Tokyo, it makes for a nice cherry blossom viewing spot in spring. Furthermore, it is known for its ginko tree forest, which turns intensely golden in autumn. Before becoming a city park in 1967, the area where Yoyogi Park is located served as the site of the Olympic Village for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, and before that, as a residential area for US military personnel.
