Yoyogi Park: Spring 2017 in Tokyo


Spring 2017 in Tokyo! Awww... look at the beautiful blooming sakura in Yoyogi Park also known as Yogogi Koen. It is one of Tokyo's largest city parks with wide lawns, ponds and forested areas. Best thing to do at Yoyogi Park is picnic under the cherry blossom trees. Plus it's a great place for jogging, and many other outdoor activities. How to get to Yoyogi Park by Tokyo Metro?

We were in Tokyo back in late February, 2017 for Tokyo Marathon. That time was the transition time from winter to spring, we were lucky that after the race we decided to head to Yoyogi Park to get our first glimpse of sakura blooming.

The weather was great, air was fresh and flowers started to bloom, it’s the sign of Spring. We had a mini picnic with some running kakis at the park in the morning the next day after the race. Had my little sakura treats too.

Well, I wish to spend the whole day at the park but we had to go to Shibuya for lunch and did our last minute shopping at Tokyo Station before flying back to Kuala Lumpur.

How to get to Yoyogi Park by Tokyo Metro?
There is no hassle at all moving around Tokyo using the comprehensive Tokyo Metro. The best way to get to Yoyogi Park is to take the JR Yamanote line train to Harajuku station. At the station exit take a right and walk about 200 meters, you will see the entrance to the park on your right. It is located next to Meiji Shrine. Admission is free.

End of February is the transition time from winter to spring so certain areas still look like winter without snow 

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.
