[Sakura 2013] Yoyogi Koen (代々木公園)


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.

Comparing to Ueno Park, the trees were really relatively fewer.

Even though it was the weekday but there was a crowd mainly students as it was the school holidays last week.

Can’t believe that the sakura season has come and gone so fast this year. Most the sakura petals have shed (some places we called it a sakura blizzard) It is pretty romantic to walk amidst the petals falling on you.

For those who have missed the Sakura in Tokyo, fret not…..colder parts of Japan’s sakura would be starting to bloom soon.
