Best attractions to visit in Tokyo

91. Yoyogi Park - Tokyo

Yoyogi Park

Yoyogi Park remains on the site from where the primary effective controlled flying machine flight in Japan occurred by Captain Yoshitoshi Tokugawa on 19 December 1910. The territory later turned into an armed force parade ground. From September 1945, the site housed the military dormitory known as the "Washington Heights" for U.S. officers amid the Allied control of Japan. Yoyogi Park , Yoyogi Kōen is one of Tokyo's biggest city parks, including wide yards, lakes and forested territories. It is an awesome place for running, picnicking and other open air exercises. Despite the fact that Yoyogi Park has generally couple of cherry trees contrasted with different destinations in Tokyo, it makes for a decent cherry bloom seeing spot in spring. Moreover, it is known for its ginko tree woods, which turns strongly brilliant in pre-winter. Before turning into a city stop in 1967, the territory where Yoyogi Park is found filled in as the site of the Olympic Village for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, and before that, as a local location for US military staff. Today, Yoyogi Park is partitioned into 2 sections, isolated by a street. One section is the backwoods stop range, and another, which is a more drawn out leave, has an outside stage and stadium. The previous is the bigger range, and is normally where individuals have grills and picnics, while the last's offices make it appropriate for occasions—it's practically inconceivable for an end of the week to pass by without an occasion in that piece of Yoyogi Park!
