When you come to the Shibuya and Harajuku areas in Tokyo, Yoyogi Park near Meiji Shrine is the best place to take a rest. When I joined a track and field club, we ran around Yoyogi Park every week. You can run and walk there while being surrounded by nature in the center of Tokyo. You can spend from 30 mins to 2 hours at Yoyogi Park and can enjoy various kinds of flowers from Spring to Summer.

At Meiji Shrine, you might see many families wearing a Kimono. In Japan, we celebrate the growth of children with milestones at ages of 3, 5 and 7 years. When I was 7 years old, my parents took me here and I have since brought my own kids too.
