Picturesque and many winding paths through the gardens. The best highlight is the collection of unique stamps you can receive from all the temples and shrines for a small donation. I have 2 books complete now and started my 3rd. Books for stamps can be...More

Do visit this shrine if you're in Harajuku. It is accessible with a short walk. I've visited this place twice and traditional Japanese wedding was held. The place was quite quiet.

It is very much like a large park inside busy Tokyo where you can be far away from the hustle and bustle of the streets. Nothing much to see but there is always a place for your meditations over what have been happening in your...More

A surprisingly expansive secluded shrine within bustling Tokyo. This forested park-like area seems larger than other shrines we visited. The long walk from the entrance to the shrine actually allows you to calm your thoughts under the tall trees. The shrine area opens to a...More

We walked around in one late afternoon after visiting Harajuku (across from this). The paths inside the park is shaded by trees, provide a nice walking environment in hot summer days. The museum and shrine have exhibits in English which is helpful.

We visited on a scorching day in July walking (the long way) from Shibuya. It was a much needed relief from the heat. Yoyogi park is a tranquil break from the fast pace city. The shrine was a beautiful, peaceful place to rest.

I love this place. It’s like a oasis in middle of busy town. Meiji shine is a worthwhile walk from Harajuku st.

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
