Yoyogi Park is the fifth largest urban park in the 23 wards of Tokyo. It is separated by a road into two sections: the Section A containing a forest park and the contrasting Section B with a stadium, outdoor stage, and other facilities.

The site of Yoyogi Park was once a military parade ground. After the war, it was used as the Washington Heights U.S. military barracks and the Olympic village for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics before being opened as a park. Trees that were still young when the park was opened have grown today to form a dense green forest along with those of Meiji Jingu Shrine.

“Water scenery” facilities consisting of three large and small fountains between 15 to 30 meters tall and a water circuit were completed in May 1990. In this way Yoyogi Park was reborn as a park blessed with both greenery and water.
