Yoyogi Park

Here is a few photos from Yoyogi Park in Harajuku.

So we get off the subway and make our way out. Being our last real day in Japan and it being Sunday, we made our way to Harajuku. Sure enough we found Yoyogi Park and way more people than one would think given how cold and rainy it was.

As you can see from these photos it's quite crowded at Yoyogi Park. Groups of people set-up speakers and boom boxes and dance. It was fun to watch these guys. They have a lot of energy.

One dances for a while then changes places with another guy.

There's gotta be a lot of stuff in that hair to keep it up after all that dancing.

There wasn't a lot of room to walk to or from the park, but still people set-up food stalls.

So the park is to the left and to the right is Meiji Shrine. Of course this isn't the shrine, it's the Hachiko Shibuya Community Bus.

This is the entrance to the Meiji Shrine. The Tori, which according to Encarta are the largest in Japan.

We didn't go into the Shrine area. It was raining a bit and cold. And there was much to see.

Also at the Shrine.
