Once a military parade ground and the home of the athletes’ village for the 1964 Olympics, the sprawling Yoyogi Park in Shibuya always has an event happening. Pack a picnic, take a bike from the hotel and cycle the pathways, enjoy a scenic jog, stroll through the gardens, watch the various street performers, or just sit back and people-watch — there’s plenty to see. In the springtime, the cherry blossoms put on a pretty display, while autumn brings the golden colors of fall foliage.
Don’t miss the Meiji Shrine next door — the famous Shinto shrine is surrounded by a forest of more than 100,000 trees, donated from all across the country and planted by hand during construction, which was completed in 1920.
