If you’re planning a trip to Japan (or have already been) then names like Shinjuku kōen (kōen is ‘park’ in Japanese), Ueno kōen and Meiji Jingū (shrine) are no doubt familiar to you. While these places are quite famous, not many people initially put a trip to a park into their travel itinerary. Which is why I thought that I’d take a moment to introduce you to my all-time favourite park, not only in Tokyo, but in the world.

Yoyogi kōen.
