Yoyogi Park

Yoyogi Park, one of the largest parks in Tokyo, was the site of the 1964 Summer Olympic Games before it was turned into a public area three years later. Today, Yoyogi is one of the most popular youth hangout spots, particularly for rock music fans. You can rent bikes or browse the wares at the Sunday flea market.

On weekdays, the park fills with walkers, joggers and picnickers enjoying the ponds and forested areas, but not so on Sundays. Each Sunday, bands and musicians set up throughout the park, and Tokyo’s Cosplay shows up in full force, donning all sorts of 50s-era rocker costumes. Don’t be surprised to see several Elvis impersonators and girls with poodle skirts or rockabilly getups. If you want a look at Japan’s youth culture, it doesn't get much better than this.

If you're here in the spring, Yoyogi has a great scene of cherry blossoms, while the park’s gingko tree forest makes for excellent leaf-peeping in autumn.
