Yoyogi Park


At the weekend, I love to go to Yoyogi Park, where I can see Japanese letting go completely of their usually suppressed emotions. Tokyo Prefecture boasts more than 2,700 parks, including Yoyogi Park in Harajuku, which boasts a size of more than 540,000 m². In 1964, the space was used as the Olympic athletes’ village for the Tokyo Olympic Games in 1964, and was later reconstructed over the span of three years. As a signature spot for nurturing Harajuku culture, the park witnessed a large number of music enthusiasts gathering there at weekend to perform, notably during the 80s and 90s. Unfortunately, following the demise of Harajuku culture, Yoyogi Park seems to have lost its charm back in the olden days.


looking at the photos and reading articles. Each word and sentence conjures up images. An enthusiast of Japanese culture, I would like to leave a record of my own memories of the Heisei Era before the new one begins.
