Yoyogi Koen

Yoyogi Park (代々木公園, 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.

Although Yoyogi Park has relatively few cherry trees compared to other sites in Tokyo, it makes a nice cherry blossom viewing spot in spring. Furthermore, it is known for its ginko tree forest, which turns intensely golden in autumn.

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.

Hotels and Ryokan
The trend setting district of Shibuya offers several hotels to those wishing to conveniently enjoy the district's many shopping and nightlife options. But Shibuya's location along the Yamanote Line and multiple subway lines, also make it a convenient base to explore the entire city.

The Tokyu corporation runs not only a lot of Shibuya's shopping facilities, but also three of the district's most prominent and convenient hotels, all located within short walks of the station. However, Shibuya does not offer many low budget choices. Unconventional lodging can be found on the Love Hotel Hill.
