Yoyogi Park (Yoyogi Kōen) is one of Tokyo's largest city parks, featuring wide lawns, ponds and forested areas. It is a great place for jogging, picnicking and other outdoor activities. It's particularly busy on weekends. It's also the location of the Meiji shrine.Recommended for:Outdoor Enthusiasts

Tokyo's best park. Best to visit on Sundays when you will find the dancing Elvis troop and Harajuku's goth girls (I like to call them gothpeeps) at the entrance to the park. Also nice for cherry blossom viewing but can be very crowded.

A park near Shinjuku where legions of cosplay teens descend in elaborate costume and makeup to preen and pose on the weekends. Will it change your life? Probably not. But it does offer great photo opportunities and an interesting insight into Japanese culture.

Only in Japan does self-expression happen in such a structured and ordered way... Sundays are when the city rips off its straitjacket of convention and kids of all ages take to the park to pay homage to being rebels without a cause or, more amusingly, their take on Elvis Presley. A huge number also come bedecked in outfits inspired by Manga animation - a virtual cult in these parts. Unmissable and occasionally surreal.

A large and interesting park in the city near Harajuku train station where club meetings and dance rehearsals are being held besides the regular picnics. We spent hours at the park. This was the view where we were seated; taking in the colours of autumn...simple yet rich pleasures of life.
On our walk back to the station, we chanced upon some Cosplay kids, costumed fans of Japanese manga and anime characters hanging out on the Harajuku bridge.
We had a lovely afternoon experiencing simple nature & non threatening self-expression of Cosplay.

Go here on any Sunday and you will encounter all kinds of interesting folk... The greasers tearing up their duct-taped-shoes and combing their amazing hair, the concoction of sounds from bands playing all over the park, and the Sunday-Rebels dressing up like evil doctors and Victorian dolls, and sometimes there are people giving out free hugs.
