Yoyogi Park

Yoyogi Park (代々木公園) is my favorite park in Tokyo and also is one of my favorite parks among all I have visited in my life. This park is located in the center of Tokyo and is entrance is next to Harajuku train station. If I should describe this park with few words it would be "the park of the hobbies". It's incredible the amount of different hobbies that Japanese people practice at this park. Japanese people are very hard workers, so they are happy to enjoy their hobbies during the weekend ^^.

Be prepared for counting all the hobbies!

This is the friend group Yoyogi Park De Enjoy Shichao, also known as YES! (if you take the first letter of some words). Surprisingly there was a mexican guy in this group so at least I could talk a little with him ^^.

In Tokyo crows are everywhere. In fact, they are a problem for the city because their population is growing without control and more and more people are suffering attacks from the crows. One day I will talk about them in detail.

There are areas reserved for dogs and their owners. This areas are sorted by dog size, so dogs with the same weight can play together.
