Not a far walk from Shibuya’s shopping district is Yoyogi park. It is one of the largest parks in Tokyo and is also near Meiji Shrine and Harajuku Station.
While making my way to the park, I came across a large group of people gathered outside the NHK Hall for a concert. I’m not sure who the singer was but I know it was a J-pop idol. The thing I found funny was that nearly all of the fans were wearing the concert T-shirt. That is not really something you see in America on a level like this.
There were several fans dressed up in cosplay outfits for the concert even, both guys and girls.
After people watching for a little bit, I continued on to check out the park.
Unfortunately as you may have noticed by now, it was gray skies most of the days I was in Japan! This was the outer garden of the park.
Later in my trip I was talking with a Japanese man and when talking about the difference between Japan and America he mentioned how there is little graffiti in Japan, and I immediately thought of this.
Yoyogi park is a popular hang out spot and around this area seemed to be the most common.
There were several groups of people playing music in the park. Overall it seemed like a really cool place to hang out or take a break from walking.
