The opening of Yoyogi Park was in October, 1967.The area is the fifth largest in the park in Tokyo’s 23 wards.In a park that is rich enough greenery to be called as a forest park, there is a forest with 27 adjoining Meiji shrines, and there is a forest with a number of Tokyo domes.

The area where there is a central square and the fountain is located in the A district, and the side of the street where there is a soccer field and the outdoor stage is designated as B district.It is used for a wide range of age groups, such as other dog run and athletic fields.

History of Yoyogi Park

Yoyogi Park has a profound history and the Edo period.At that time, there was a residence of the Kato family of Kumamoto Domain in the vast territory of Yoyogi-Uehara.The Kato family of Kumamoto Domain was also known as’ Kiyomasa KATO’, but it was destroyed during the period of’ Tadahiro,’ the successor of Kiyomasa, in the era of’.’ 3.Later, he was given to the Ii family (Hikone Domain).After the Meiji Restoration (the fifteenth lord of the Ii family, Naosuke II) was presented to the government after the Meiji Restoration, it became a sacred place and Meiji Jingu was built in 1920.

Before the war, it was the Yoyogi training ground of the Imperial Japanese Army.After the defeat in World War II, there was Washington Heights as a military site for the American military barracks and the home for families that had occupied Japan.It is also famous as a place where airplanes flew in Japan for the first time in 1910.Later, it was used as a Yoyogi village at the Tokyo Olympic Games in 1964, and still remains as a memorial building for the Olympic Games (Dutch athletes’ lodgings).It was opened after the Tokyo Olympics after the opening of Yoyogi park in Yoyogi Park.It was opened in 1967 as the first forest park in Tokyo, and it is open to all gardens in 1971.

In Yoyogi Park, which is also associated with historical celebrities, there is a “Kiyokiyomi” (Kiyokiyomi no ido) that is said to have been dug by Kiyomasa KATO, which was mentioned earlier in the next Meiji Shrine, by Kiyomasa KATO, who was mentioned above, in the. Masai.In the present day, he took pictures of the wells of Kiyomasa, and he became famous as a power spot as he had a sense of fortune as he was waiting for his cell phone to wait for his cell phone.

There are some shops where prices are set, but there are many shops where price is decided and the price is decided.90% of the items are exhibited at the clothing exhibition, and the brand goods are good at a good price, so it is a very popular event.Children’s clothes are smaller than other flea markets, so if you want to use them, I recommend a flea flea at Setagaya and Nissan Stadium.The venue is Shibuya, so it’s a relatively young image for the young people.
