#3 in Harajuku

Yoyogi is one of the well-known places to visit in Tokyo, for several reasons:

In short, Yoyogi-Koen is one of these unmissable places while traveling in Japan, if you spend a few days in Tokyo. I particularly suggest you stop by on a Saturday or Sunday. The Japanese (and many gaijin expats) stay in Yoyogi park for hours to relax, enjoy a picnic, spend some time with a partner or friends, or simply walk or bicycle. The ponds provide a little more refreshed air, especially in the summer when it's very hot in Japan.

Among the fun attractions in Yoyogi, note the Rockabilly dancers at the entrance, impromptu cosplay parades, or the sublime wedding processions inside Meiji Jingu. But to be quite exhaustive, there are also quite a lot of homeless people who have built genuine shelters, a little away from the passage.
