Yoyogi park is one of Tokyo's largest city parks at 54 hectares, featuring wide lawns, ponds, and forests area including sakura cherry trees. It is a great place for jogging, birdwatching, and any other outdoor activities.
On April, Yoyogi park is really crowded by a tons of visitors who come to see cherry blossoms and Ohanami(eat and drink under cherry trees!). Approximately 600 cherry trees are in full bloom and form the pink sakura arch beautifully at Sakura area.
Also, there are a lot of food stands during sakura season, so you can enjoy walk-and-eat while viewing cherry trees.

Has beautiful cherry blossoms in spring. And sprawling green grass.. good for a break from the noise of the city. It's also close to where all the theme fests happen (like Thai festival, Taiwan festival etc.) I recommend you buy your food from the festivals.. walk back to Yoyogi park, relax and eat there! Instruments, music are all allowed so it's a fun atmosphere!

Very spacious park. Great place to relax. They had a wide variety of beautiful flowers a short walk from the entrance too! A bunch of people come here with a picnic blanket to lay down and sky-watch.

This is a beautiful and spacious park with a lot of greenery in the middle of Tokyo. There is a very popular shrine in the center which generally attract a lot of visitors too. The park is free to enter and has a lot of signage to prevent getting lost. There are public washrooms and food as well. This place is perfect on a warm and sunny day!

A relaxing and beautiful park. Loved walking the small off the main walkway paths. Had some delicious snacks from vendors by a gate. And seeing the Rockabilly group perform was great fun!

We visited on a week day at around 2pm. It was a nice day at 22°c. I was pleasantly surprised to see locals (couples, or groups of ladies) enjoying picnics too. Be mindful of wind as it can sweep up sand and create mini sand storms - cover your food!
10/10 will visit again if I visit Tokyo. It should be interesting in the other seasons too.
