Time Out says

Get back to nature without straying too far from the nearest Starbucks with an outing to Yoyogi Park. This ever-popular spot in central Tokyo occupies the site of Japan's first successful powered aircraft flight, and later the athletes' village during the 1964 Olympics.

The north side is a lush sprawl of trees and greenery where city slickers can take a break from the crush or let their pets roam free at the dog run. The south side has an event plaza and open-air stage that hosts many of Tokyo’s larger festivals, including the annual Earth Day, Thai Festival and Brazil Festival.

The park is open 24 hours, and includes a parking lot. You'll find Meiji-Jingu Shrine, NHK and the National Gymnasium (Kokuritsu Yoyogi Kyogijo) nearby.

What’s on

Sri Lanka Festival

As befits a country-themed festival, this fun-filled Sri Lankan weekend will woo the crowds with traditional Channa Upuli dancing, music and over 60 stalls selling spicy dishes, Ceylon tea, handicrafts, Ayurvedic treatments and more. Who knows, you might even find a hopper (appam) or two.
